A lightly oxidized .999 fine silver bee with 22K gold accents on the section between the wings, the two raised stripes of the body, and the eyes. The bee hangs on delicate sterling silver figure eight chain with links reminiscent of honeycomb cells.

I create these pendants using Precious Metal Clay and a hand mold of my original bee made from a real, naturally expired insect. The process allows me to recreate a smaller, detailed version of the bee, while still enjoying the ability to make each one by hand from start to finish. The pendant is polished by hand and coated with museum quality protectant to help retain the patina and delay tarnishing of the sterling silver components.

Bees are a major pollinator of our food supply, and due in large part to the massive decline in their population, beekeepers in many countries now offer their services for necessary pollination rather than honey-production. Bee teaches us cooperation, organization, diligence, how to enjoy the sweet things in life, and maybe a little about how to care for our world and the other species in it.
