Unit price/ per
Our Sterling Queen Bee Pendant is a plump, tactile Bee, handcrafted with a robust swirling spiral shaped abdomen, with your choice for the gemstone for us to set as her head. We lightly antique our Sterling and finish with a hand-brushed technique.
T and Brie works are contemporary yet evocative of another time; like a treasure pulled from a mysterious jewelry box, belonging to one closely connected to Bees.
Crafted with either a Lobster Claw style clasp or a Hook and Eye Clasp, on woven signature Twisted Rope chain. Different chain lengths available are available.
The feminine form of the Bee series was inspired by Bee's long association 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.
"I fabricate my designs in metal enjoying the boundaries and properties of the medium. Each piece is a layer of techniques and manipulations of metal. We cast some parts in small batches and then solder our work together. I strive to distill an essence of nature in the final designs creating a contemporary version of a familiar form. Our hope is to craft personal, lasting amulets for the wearer; amulets that will foster a bond with the smaller creatures in our midst." Teresa de la Guardia, designer, metalsmith, T and Brie
All pieces will arrive in a pouch, inside a decorative gift box with our small informational Bee cards, for special gift giving or safe keeping.
Each work is signed and dated and hand stamped Sterling. As all pieces are handmade, please note our shipping times. Kindly let us know if you need the items by a certain date before purchase. Most of our work is made to order.
