These artful creations of a vanishing species show influences from Art Nouveau to Lalique, yet remain true to the bee. Made here in the Southwest of sterling silver and Shibuichi (an ancient Japanese method of alloying silver with copper), they are articulated with wings that can move gently up and down. They have been carved in wax, molded, and then cast. The result is regal, sensitive, and poignant.Did you know that one in three food plants depend entirely on bees, and the bees are dying out! We will donate 10% of the sale price on these bee pendants to The Honeybee Conservancy, a 501c3 non-profit foundation dedicated to building bee habitats and education.Be sure to see our Bumblebee Pendant and their cohorts in the Animal Friends section.
