Request a custom order and have something made just for you.
For so work the honey-bees,
Creatures that by a rule in nature teach
The act of order to a peopled kingdom.
They have a king and officers of sorts;
Where some, like magistrates, correct at home,
Others, like merchants, venture trade abroad,
Others, like soldiers, armèd in their stings,
Make boot upon the summer's velvet buds;
Which pillage they with merry march bring home
To the tent-royal of their emperor.

-William Shakespeare, from Henry V

I constructed this sweet brooch by layering different antiqued brass filigrees and settings. The golden topaz vintage glass jewel measures a full 25x18mm. This is set in a fancy-pronged setting, framed by a flowery filigree, and then placed in a rope-edged setting.

The golden gem is accented by a single honey bee (10x11mm).

The back features a lovely Victorian filigree and a pin-back to securely attach the brooch to your scarf, your coat, your lapel, etc. for a great Autumn look :)

The whole brooch measures about 40x30mm.
