• Art Deco Style Honeybee Necklace


    This pendant is made to order- please allow one week production.

    PRODUCT INFO AND PROCESS: I hand-carved the original shape from jeweler's wax, inspired by classic Art Deco shapes. After I was happy with my prototype, I made a mold so I can cast this shape in any metal. After I bring my casting back to my studio and clean it, I set the bee cabochons inside. To create these, I place the dried-out bees in molds and build up layers of resin around them. Near the end I put in a layer of gold leaf, then a final layer of resin over that.

    SIZE: The pendant measures 1.5" tall and .75" across at the widest point, and comes on your choice of 16", 18", or 20" gold-filled chains with lobster clasps. Model is wearing a 16" chain.

    MATERIALS: Brass on gold-filled chain, or sterling pendant. Resin cabochon.

    CUSTOMIZATION: Would you like a special message on the back? Engraving is available for $10. Please allow 3-6 business days for engraving. Simply select this variation at check out, then add a note to seller with exactly the engraving you want. 

    ABOUT THE BEES: This series features real honey bees encased in resin. All bees died of natural causes (I do not kill them, just pick them up), and I get them from amazing small bee keepers in the USA. All are from healthy and well-cared for hives.
