Dear Amber Lover,

There’s a chill in the air & you know what that means!

It’s our mission & honestly our pleasure to hunt the world over for interesting amber jewelry for interesting women. Therefore we are really happy to announce…

1. Our New Bohemian Collection, named after the birthplace of Daniel Swarovski, inventor of the Swarovski crystal. An array of truly modern amber jewelry studded with sparkling Swarovski crystals, briolettes, freshwater pearls, soft gold brushed sterling silver, bedecked with feathers & well… We hope you’ll stop by & see for yourself.

Amber_swarovskiThis isn’t your grandmother’s amber jewelry!  And we say this with utter reverence in our hearts for Polish grandmothers. 🙂

The New Bohemian Collection is fun, flirty, a little sexy. It features drops & dangles, hoops & tassels, cacades & clusters. Mostly, it moves when you move. Quantities are limited.


Amber_chamber_gierlowski 3. Newly posted to The Amber Reading Room, an article about the life & times of amber expert Wieslaw Gierlowski who celebrated his 80th birthday earlier this year.

Excerpt: "Gierlowski is the man behind the greatest number of books, articles and reports on amber. Mr. Gierlowski is an unquestioned authority, an expert in his field and in many restoration efforts. To describe all the works he had undertaken would require a hefty book. He was the co-founder and the first president of the Management of the Amber Association in Poland. As a world-class expert, he supported the team which reconstructed the Amber Chamber in Tsarskoye Selo near St. Petersburg. He has made and still makes works which find their place in museum exhibitions. In spite of the passage of time, changes in positions and functions, Mr. Gierlowski takes up his work with a youthful fervour and passion."


4. We’ll be launching a completely new site in early 2006 with lots of new capabilities. We’re eager to go forward but the last few months of the year aren’t the time for us to do it. Meanwhile, our existing categories have changed a bit. But you can still browse by color & type by using the Advanced Search function. By using Advanced Search, you can also search by date added to inventory (most of the New Bohemian Collection was added in October, not November) & also by price.

Starry_nights_amber_set 5. After a lot of back & forth & a few failed prototypes, our Starry Nights earrings are now in stock, available in a sterling lever-back style. Starry Nights has a spinoff as well, Sparkly Nights in gorgeous green amber.

6. We still expect lots of new arrivals before the holidays. You can check some of these out here, in Andzia’s Secret Stash. Amber angels are on their way, as well as some lovely leaf designs, vintage flowers, antique roses… even men’s cufflinks are on the way.

7. Congratulations to our two most recent Bellaonline Sweepstakes Winners- Allan Schwartz of New Jersey was our March 05 winner, and Dixie in Pennsylvania. Dixie if you’re reading this, Bella has not provided us with your contact information so please get in touch. Each will receive a $100.00 gift certificate from

Our very last Bella Sweeps will close on November 30th- anyone who wishes to may enter here (you may enter daily).

8.  About those great Van Gogh amber sunflowers posted in a previous Secret Stash & in blog entry "Divine Design":- about which we’ve had several emails. They did arrive about ten days ago, but unfortunately we felt the quality of the carvings was not up to snuff. So they will not be available for some time, but we hope to bring them back in early spring.

And- just one more little thing- we’ve been invited by Count Me In to apply for a joint project between this New York based organization that specializes in working with women entrepreneurs towards economic independence & American Express called "Make Mine A Million!" – a competitive business loan package that involves a lot of mentoring. So, please cross your fingers for us. Because one of the projects we’re proposing is that nebulous amber jewelry print catalog we get so many calls & emails about! 🙂

Although I can’t honestly say either of us actually aspires to make a million dollars, we would love to launch Andzia’s Amber- the brand. And we’d love it even more if you came along.

Thanks for taking the time to read this message. We really appreciate it. Happy Hunting!

Cordially, Holly & Andzia

Andzia’s Amber Jewelry
