Our Sterling Queen Bee Amulet is 1" wide by 1" long, enhanced by a swirling spiral shaped abdomen, with your choice for the gemstone to be set in the head. The glistening wings feature petite secondary ones, lightly textured.
We give our Sterling work a natural patina and then finish with a hand-brushing, imparting a matte sheen to the metal, exuding an understated sophistication. All uniquely handcrafted, an Adornment for the Nature lover with a contemporary sensibility.
The feminine form of these Bees is inspired by the many associations of women and bees 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.
Our pleasure is to create pieces in metal, from sketches of observations of the many interesting details of our environment. We strive to distill an essence of these aspects of nature in the final designs. Our hope is that they become contemporary personal amulets for the wearer, and foster a connection with the smaller creatures in our midst.
