Gold Colony Collapse Real Bee Necklace in Hexagon

My Colony Collapse series features real honey bees encased in resin. All bees 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 name of the series is just in recognition of the problems our dear pollinators are currently facing.

Pendant measures about 1" tall, and hangs with a brass hexagon on a 16" or 18" gold-filled cable chain with a lobster clasp. 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.

This necklace is also available in silver!

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. 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. I use mostly worker bees, but also some drones.*
