This pendant is based on the unusual shape of the Ophrys Bee Orchid. This wild orchid species has evolved its shape and coloring to mimic a bee pollinating a flower. Although in northern Europe and England the orchid self pollinates and has lost the need to look like a bee, in southern Europe this orchid uses scent and its obvious visual cues to attract bee pollinators. The bees 'mate' with the orchid, collecting and depositing pollen along the way.

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The Ophrys pendant is lightly polished after casting to give the piece a smooth glossy texture.

To prevent waste and overstock, the jewelry is not made until you order. Please allow 3-4 weeks for printing and shipping. All items are gift-wrapped in original, recyclable Ontogenie packaging and then shipped insured by registered mail, worldwide.

The pendant is approximately 2cm long below the loop and 2.5cm wide.
