Colony Collapse Real Bee Necklace, Round

The latest in the Colony Collapse series, with real bees encased in resin. All bees died of natural causes- and most are from a roof-top beekeeper here in Brooklyn.

Circle pendant measures about 1" tall, and comes on an 18" gold-filled fine cable chain. I collect the dried-out bees, then place them in molds and build up layers of resin around them. Near the end, I put in a layer of gold leaf, then a final layer of resin over that. It ends up having this lovely amber glow, especially when the light hits it.

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

*This is NOT the exact necklace you will be receiving. Yours will be the same size and shape as described here, but I do not photograph every single one any longer. If you would like to see the necklace 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.* Also available in silver.
