My Mission Statement To Ignite a passion in others for Color By Amber thus allowing them to “accessorize responsibly” To Educate people about our social responsibility to help the environment To encourage people to question where, who, how the products they buy are made & come from

Amber is fossilized resin produced by extinct coniferous trees Ecoresin: A translucent co-polyester resin that contains 40% recycled content Carbon- Neutral: Terra-Pass Project Repurpose Materials: Jeans, Coffee Bean Bags, Magazine Shreds * Like Amber is translucent and encapsulates trees, our Jewelry encapsulates beautiful materials from all around the world.
