Sterling Petite Queen Bee Earrings will buzz just below the earlobe on graceful locking french Ear Wires or on the earlobe, they are finished with Posts and Backs, all crafted by hand. Our smallest Bee earrings, at just over 1/2" in length and width, are enhanced by a rich variety of luminous gemstone Cabochons which we will set in the head as the final stage of crafting these small renditions of the effervescent insect. A mystical Bee, epitomizing our feelings of the magic of these special and important creatures.
They are made fully round, their bodies are a swirl of Sterling Wire. They are given a natural patina to enhance their details and we finish by hand-brushing them to a satin sheen. Contemporary and fresh and never too cute; a unique gift for the sophisticated nature lover in your life.
These little Bees, like most of our jewelry will be made for you, please allow time for the creative process and if you have a specific gift-giving time frame kindly let us know.
The feminine form of these earrings is inspired by Bees associations throughout history with women. In Greek mythology, Bees were believed to be the souls of Priestesses who had been in the service of Aphrodite during their lifetimes.
Size: These lightweight earrings hang 3/4" long, with locking metal ear wires. Crafted for you with Posts, they will sit on the ear lobe.
I sketch from observation and and work to distill the essence of my impressions and then construct each piece utilizing metalsmithing techniques. I fabricate my designs in metal enjoying the resist and confines of the medium.
