be the nectar
Cast sterling bee pendant with natural, heated only, deep midnight blue/green sapphire heart, with aquamarine briolette.
1 3/4" wingspan and 19 1/4" inches end to end - I am happy to adjust it to the length that you prefer.
Necklace molded and prototyped from the blue fur carpenter bee, or Xylocopa Caerulea (pictured above).
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.
Bees are a consummate example of how spectacularly intricate and complex nature is.
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! Grapefrueit! 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.
Protect the earth. Save beauty.
Boycott Bayer Montsanto.
Honor the bee.
Talisman to be the nectar.
