DO YOU KILL THE BEES FOR JEWELRY?
Never! All honeybees died of natural causes, and I get them from amazing bee keepers in the Northeast USA. *All are from healthy and well-cared for hives.* The keepers simply scoop up the dead ones for me they find around their hives. Depending on their role in the hive and the time of year they are raised, most workers and drones live from just a few weeks to up 6 months (if they survive the winter by huddling around the Queen).

*This item is MADE TO ORDER- please allow one to two weeks for me to make your custom silver bee ring.*

SIZE:
The bee cabochon (the round casting of the bee) measures about 3/4" across, and is about 3/8" high.

PRODUCT INFO AND PROCESS:
I make each ring out of sheet metal, piercing and soldering the all the pieces from sheet silver. To make the bee focal point, I collect the dried-out bees, then place them in molds and build up layers of epoxy resin around them. At the end, I add a layer of gold leaf, then set them in the sterling silver bezel. It ends up having this lovely amber glow when the light hits it.

Available in either US sizes or adjustable.

CARE:
Restore shine to the resin with a fingernail buffer. The silver ring can be polished up with any silver cloth, though it should self-polish from regular wear.

*This is NOT the exact ring you will be receiving. Yours will be the same size and shape as described here, but I do not photograph every single insect ring. The position of each bee is one of a kind. If you would like to see the ring I intend to send, just let me know and I will send you a snapshot. Bees are in all different positions and sizes, and every single piece is unique. I use mostly worker bees, but also some drones. You can request a bee in any position, or even send me one of your own bees to cast.*

Great gift for any beekeeper, gardener, queen bee, or nature-lover in your life.

Jewelry that needs polishing comes with a polishing swatch and care info on a card. Most items that can tarnish also come with an airtight baggie and anti-tarnish swatch for storage. You can find additional care info in each item's details.

Silver jewelry can be polished with any commercial polishing cloth. I don't recommend liquid cleaners as this will remove the detail oxidation.

This site has great brass care tips: http://www.eaglerowe.com/how-to-clean-and-care-for-brass-jewelry/
I am happy to create custom orders. If there is an etching or carving you would like that I believe I can add to my line, it will be similarly priced to other stock items. If it is a unique item just for you, design rates start at about $150, then go up based on how many hours of labor and revisions we need to go through, plus the final cost of materials.
I am also happy to cast your bees into resin, or use your personal snake's shedding on an ouroboros! Just shoot me a convo, and I can send you my shipping address.
All jewelry come in the box with ribbon as pictured, and if you select additional gift wrap to be added, I will put that into a nice linen pouch stamped with my logo as well. To be honest, I only added the specific gift wrap option to be included in the Etsy algorithm- all of my jewelry comes packaged gift-ready regardless!
Sizing availability is in each item's details. I can make most necklaces and rings any size you like, just shoot me a convo before ordering.
Yes I do offer wholesale! You can send me a convo with your email address and store info and I will send line sheets directly.
Yes! I would love to make something special just for the two of you. Please contact me directly.
