Bee Happy

in: Necklace



I have garden beds full of bees right now, storing up for the long months to come.  A long running theme in my business has been inspiration from nature, and I often incorporated bees and dragonflies in my designs.  This terrific antique silver focal piece from Istanbul provided the perfect backdrop for a small statement piece.  I've added a finely detailed bee and Swarovski flat back crystals in opal, and there are four drops with white glass pearls and 75- year-old Swarovski round stones.  It's finished with a simple antique silver chain and a plated rose toggle.  The focal piece is 2 1/2" wide and a 1 1/4" deep.  The chain measures about 17".  Don't' keep this one for dressier occasions - it's great with a denim jacket or casual sweater too.
