Amulet as tribute to the beauty of the hexagon, a form made by bees all over the world.
As Charles Darwin once wrote, "The honeycomb is a masterpiece of engineering. It is absolutely perfect in economizing labor and wax."
We are intrigued by the fascinating ways of insects and we find Bees to be most inspiring. Mysterious, and quite magical in their pollinating skills, their production of honey as well as their loyalty to the health of the community and their Queen. Overall, we find their myriad intelligent behaviors fascinating, and we look for ways to incorporate our observations into artistic expressions to be worn and enjoyed by others who may feel likewise.
