Baltic Amber Kids Bracelet/Anklets
Are designed to be worn by kids around the age of 2 upwards. The elastic bracelets are threaded on to a stretchy elastic, which can fit small or large wrists. The lemon screw bracelets/anklets are threaded in the same way as the Baltic Amber Children's necklaces, a bead and then a knot and secured with the plastic screw clasp. Both styles can be worn as anklets or bracelets.
The colour and size of the beads may vary slightly from the photo, as each bracelet is individually made.
These bracelets/anklets are a unique gift idea or perfect for a child who prefers to wear bracelets or anklets to necklaces.

What Is Amber?
Amber is not a stone and therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear. Amber stores static electricity, named elektron by the ancient Greeks. Elektron evolved into the English term "electricity." When rubbed, the gem attracts lint. Amber was used to remove lint by the Phoenicians & Etruscans & was therefore nicknamed "Straw Thief" in Turkey. Amber is the lightest weight & softest of all gems (a diamond is hardest). It is one of only a handful of gems of vegetative, not mineral, origin. The others are pearl, jet & coral. Amber is warm against the skin. In contrast, minerals and glass are heavier and cooler than room temperature. Stones like jade, lapis and turquoise feel cool or even cold to the touch, but amber feels warm. This, along with its obvious sunny colour, is why it is known as “sunshine” to Lithuanians. True amber is light enough to float in salt water, if not weighed down by other substances (like silver), but it won't float to the top, it floats like soap would in a bathtub. This quality probably helped in its discovery—inhabitants of the Baltic Sea area can still find raw amber washed up on the shore after storms.
Place of Origin: Each necklace is handcrafted in Eastern Europe by experienced craftsmen and are made from ancient Baltic Amber and beautifully designed to follow the centuries old European tradition of children wearing amber.
