The Story of — Part One

Once upon a time. . . there was a mom of 3 beautiful and crazy children. She worked online out of her home, running a fairly successful Ebay store and trading assistant business, along with a few other endeavors.

She had tried a few other things in the past, to see what worked and what did not, and to learn about online business and web management. Along the way, she learned that if she thought an idea was good, to think on it and sleep on it for a while, just to be sure.

One day, the mom noticed a beautiful necklace on another baby. She wanted one for her one-year-old daughter. This necklace was natural looking, yet so pretty! The mom’s friend told the mom that it was a Baltic Amber teething necklace. The mom had never heard of Baltic Amber teething necklaces before this, but she was fascinated.

And so, an idea began. As the mom researched and looked at the pictures of the beautiful Baltic Amber teething necklaces, and other Baltic Amber jewelry, she became fascinated. She slept on her thoughts and plans and ideas for weeks. But the ideas would not go away.

And so it goes. . . .Obviously, the “mom” is me. . .when I first saw the Baltic Amber beads that arrived from the Baltic Sea region of Lithuania (after anxiously waiting almost 20 days for the package), and held them in my hands, I was excited to discover that the Amber was just as beautiful as I had hoped and imagined it would be.

Baltic Amber Beads is born today.  I have invested my time, energy, and resources into making SparkofAmber a beautiful and attractive shopping experience. I am excited, and hopeful for the future of this website. I have more exciting products to arrive, more beautiful items to showcase! For example, I will be featuring Mother’s Day gift ideas in the coming weeks. I also will be getting Baltic Amber nursing necklaces in stock in the next month or two.

If you follow Spark of Amber on Facebook, you will be the first to know about our new arrivals! We also are on Twitter and Etsy.

I hope other moms, those unfamiliar with the beauty of Baltic Amber, will discover the jewelry for the first time and be as delighted and enchanted as I was. I hope they appreciate the personalized shopping experience, and being able to order Baltic Amber jewelry from the United States for faster delivery (instead of waiting for 3-4 weeks).

This is part one of the story, because it is to be continued. Today is Day One of “official business” for The rest of the story remains to be told. I hope you’ll stick around to experience it with me.
