Handcrafted Sterling Honeybee earrings will buzz just below the earlobe on graceful ear wires with textured wings and bodies. We handcraft our Bees from Sterling Sheet metal, chasing a light feathery texture into her wings.
These unique earrings are 1" wide, enhanced by luminous Citrine high-dome Cabochon "abdomens", like drops of solid honey that we set into our crafted bezels. Your choice for the Gemstone to be set in the head of this important and endangered insect, will personalize these little Bees to you.
These Bees will be made for you, please allow for the creative process and if you have a specific gift giving time frame, kindly let us know before purchasing as our production time also varies given the orders we have in house.

Bees were greatly prized in the Ancient world as the industrious creators of honey that was both a desired food and one of the few important preservatives then known. They are mentioned in the oldest literature of the world. Bees were often regarded as soul-carriers or intermediate forms of human souls by the Ancients. The feminine form of these earrings is inspired by Bee's associations with women throughout History. In Greek mythology, bees were believed to be the souls of priestesses who had been in the service of Aphrodite during their lifetimes.
Honeybees have been our major insect pollinators for more than 4000 years. They make many of our favorite foods possible. They are socially driven to work together for the good of the colony. They have become scarce due to exposure to pesticides, herbicides and viruses. Please choose organic products when tending your garden and plants, the Bees will thank you, 10 fold.
All pieces will arrive decoratively gift boxed with our informational card to spread the word about the plight of the Honey bee along with simple care instructions for your unique jewelry. Each piece is signed and dated and hand stamped Sterling.
