be the nectar

Be the nectar.  Cast sterling silver bee with a spessartine garnet heart and a 5x9mm. rhodolite garnet briolette.

1 3/4" wingspan and 17 inches end to end.

Bee pendant molded and prototyped from a blue fur carpenter bee, or Xylocopa Caerulea.

While I watch the bees, and I love to watch them!  I wonder how the bees choose the flowers they go to. When I make the pendants, I try to create combinations of stones that will suit different people and preferences. Visual nectar. Just as the bees find the right flowers to land on, each bee necklace finds its person.

Although as light as a feather, they do the job of the world - they pollinate our food and make the world beautiful and delicious! Apples! Almonds! Blueberries! Cherries! Avocados! Cucumbers! Onions! Grapefruit! and most inportantly food for our souls. Every blossom elevates our spirit simply by existing.

Bees are disappearing and dying.

Love nature. Save the bees. Eat organic food.

Talisman to be the nectar.

$700.

I have a dozen of my 'be the nectar' bees out in the world. While I watch the bees, and I love to watch them!  I wonder how the bees choose the flowers they go to and so when I make the pendants, I try to create combinations of stones that will fit different people. Just as the bees find the right flowers to land on, each bee necklace finds its person.

I was so happy when this necklace was purchased by Lois, an environmentalist with the Alaskan Wilderness League, who I greatly admire for the beautiful work that she does for the bees and all the rest of us, living here on earth. 

I have another heart garnet and can replicate the heart bee. Briolette to be determined with order. Inquiries welcome.
