Handmade

Materials

solid cast bronze, raw brass chain, gold filled lobster clasp

A slim, understated bronze intaglio pendant depicting a bee. In many ancient civilizations, the figure of a bee represented hard work and diligence.

This pendant is also available in sterling silver for $85. Please contact me if you're interested in purchasing this pendant in silver.

THE DETAILS
The chain is raw brass with a gold-filled lobster clasp. The length of the chain is 18" (46 cm). The pendant measures 7/8" across (22 mm).
Please note that the pendant is permanently fixed on this chain. If you would like a different length chain, I am happy to make you a custom length; be sure to include the requested length in messages when you place an order.

THE PROCESS
This pendant is hand-carved in wax and cast in solid bronze using the lost wax process. As with all my pieces, the pendant is cast in small batches with a local business. Pieces are soldered by me and finished by hand in my studio. Each piece receives a great deal of care and attention to craft.

THE MATERIALS
All Ibis Elements pieces are cast in a lustrous, high-quality yellow bronze or brass. With time, these metals develop a subtle patina that deepens the character and charm of a piece. Please be aware that some people’s skin takes on a slight greenish cast when in prolonged contact with bronze or brass. This issue arises primarily with rings. Any green marks disappear easily with soap and water. All earrings use gold-filled wire to prevent irritation.
