Be the Nectar
Necklace molded and prototyped from the blue fur carpenter bee, or Xylocopa Caerulea (also pictured).
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! Flowering trees! and most importantly food for our souls - every blossom elevates our spirit simply by existing.
Bees are disappearing and dying.
If they go, we're next.
Love nature. Save the bees. Eat organic food.
Protect the earth. Save beauty.
Boycott Bayer Montsanto.
Honor the bee.
