Valued Customers,

I wanted to take a moment to formally introduce our new company – “Amber by Vessel."  This new business venture has been in the making for the past three years. Stephanie & Christopher Stepien former owners of Vessel International, Inc. came to me in 2014 with the idea that when they retired they wanted me to continue  to work in the amber industry by starting my own amber wholesale business.  After working for Stephanie and Chris (better known as Steph & Szef – Polish for male boss) for the past 12+ years, it seemed to be a wonderful blessing. Steph and Szef did retire this past December after 25+ years in the amber business. They will truly be missed, but know they are enjoying some travel time and family. 

This is a personal guarantee that I will do my best to continue to provide your businesses with the highest quality of Baltic amber jewelry that you have grown accustom to at a great price.  Continued excellent customer support, timely shipping of orders, and wonderful new catalogs with the latest amber designs. The staff here at Amber by Vessel are looking forward to working closely with you and continue growing our friendships. Arlene Hammond, my wonderful friend & co-worker has graciously joined in this transition after 12 years of service with Vessel International.  Some new faces for Amber by Vessel will be Kristina Mowen (aka Krissy – our sweet daughter-in-law) helping with advertising, marketing and working with our web store.  Also Amy Grove a dear friend, has joined our group on a part-time bases handling our inventory, shipments and accounting.

We look forward to working with you and please feel free to contact me directly with any questions.

God Bless!

Amber by Vessel online store was developed to let our customers enjoy the beauty of gem quality Baltic amber.  Our genuine Baltic amber is set in .925 Sterling silver to provide the most classic designed jewelry for our client to wear and love. The styles range from very earthly, classical pieces to whimsical styles that may include a elegant array of inclusions and insects.

Our amber comes directly from Poland and Lithuania were the largest deposits of Baltic amber are found. Baltic amber is believed to have medicinal purposes and was sult after from Ancient Greece and Roman kings and queens years ago to show their wealth and nobility.
