🐝 Ring Sizes! 🐝 I am hoping to make the bands for the rest of rings in this design, and I need your help! There will be nine of these rings total, and I have four people who have requested ones made in their sizes. It will still be first come first serve, but since I haven’t made the bands yet, I want to try to accommodate those who think they might try to pick one up in the shop update. 🐝 So, if you are planning to try for one in the shop update, let me know in the comments your ring size! 🐝 (Keep in mind this is a wide band, so the size you request should be half a size up from your true ring size. They fit snug!)
Oh! Did I tell you that there is a honeycomb pattern on the back of this pendant? Like honeycomb hidden in the hive, here is honeycomb hidden against the skin. 🐝 There will be six of these necklaces available in the update.
And here, my honeybee compass. This piece I have long had plans for, ever since I learned about the way in which bees navigate to and from the hive. Truly creatures of summertime, bees use the sun as a fixed reference point. As such, the sun anchors their internal compasses, even on cloudy days. When a bee finds a lovely patch of pollen or nectar-rich flowers, it maps the location by remembering the angle between the hive, the flowers, and the sun. 🐝 And so, I have created this piece for that glorious aspect of bee behavior: a honeybee compass. This large hexagon pendant features dots and lines radiating from the sunny citrine gemstone at the center. I wanted the inscribed dot/line pattern to resemble a compass, though still feel a bit unruly and natural. 🐝 I hope you like it! There will be six of these available in the shop update.
🐝 Attention honeybees! 🐝 The first full preview for the Honeybee Collection is up on the blog. 🐝 If you have been with me little while, you will know that within a collection nearly every aspect of the design of a piece ties back into the theme. In tonight’s post, I have written about how I approached this collection, as well as each design and their meaning. 🐝 Tell me, which is your favorite of these three new designs? I would love to know!
