Silver Round Real Bee Necklace, Colony Collapse Jewelry

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" sterling silver 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 silver leaf, then a final layer of resin over that. It looks especially lovely and crisp when the light hits it.

A 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 gold.

Frequently asked questions about jtopolski

Yes I do offer wholesale! You can send me a convo with your email address and I will send line sheets and info, or find me here on the Etsy Wholesale platform.
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.
