Amable du Fond River


The Amable du Fond River is steeped in both rich history and natural beauty. It was named after an Algonquin Native who hunted, trapped and fished on the river. In the mid 1800s, he built his family homestead on Manitou Lake and it is still recognizable today. The river was also extensively used in the logging industry.

Nothing compares to the beauty of the Amable du Fond, with its assortment of rapids, waterfalls and lengths of smooth water; the sights and sounds are remarkable. A combination of striated sandstone and pale plum with a subtle stripe of darker plum embellished with stringers and dots of black, this bead truly mimics natures melody. The focal bead is etched to render a luxurious matte finish and includes two matte finished black accent beads. 

The outside dimension of the focal bead measures approximately 20mm with a hole size of approx. 3.25mm. The accent beads are approx. 10mm with a hole of approx. 3.25mm. 

**Please note that each bead is individually hand crafted and some slight differences will occur. Sizes and designs may vary slightly. The pictured chain is also not included but is available for purchase here.

The River Collection
Every river I have ever paddled brings forth its own individuality. What is true of each is that it can bring peace, reflection and wonder; from the smallest ripple to a towering wave, or from a meandering stream to a thundering rapid.

Just as each river is unique, so are the rocks that a river runs through, over or under. If you look closely, each rock has it’s own beauty, whether it’s the color, the shape, the sedimentary lines formed by millennium or the lichens that make them their homes.

The beads in this collection bare the names of some of the rivers I grew up calling “home” in Algonquin Park, Canada.
