This bumblebee necklace is a screenprint from an original drawing by Camilla Taylor and hangs from a silver chain.

The bumblebee was hand screenprinted on a sanded piece of polystyrene (known to crafters as Shrinky-dink) and suspended from a silver chain.

Bumblebees live in a small colonies that often last only for one summer. Unlike many other social insects, female bumblebee workers aren't sterile and can lay eggs of their own, which develop into males, but only the queen can lay eggs which develop into the female worker bees and new queens. I saw this bee while at Huntington Gardens in Pasadena and went home and drew her that night.

15% of the sale price will be donated to the Xerces Society, a nonprofit organization that protects wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitat.
