All the bees are humming and preening themselves in anticipation of tonight's shop update. The small cedar chest I am keeping them in is about to shake off the shelf with all the buzzing, like there is a small hive of sterling silver and gemstone inside. See you at 7pm EST! 🐝✨💛
Honey Necklaces ✨ And here they are! Necklaces featuring big gemstones in the center, surrounded by brass pollen granules, and with bee shaped windows on the backs to let light through. ✨ There are twenty four smooth citrines and one special rough version! They will all spill into the shop tonight at 7pm EST! (www.etsy.com/shop/moonspinnershop)
These rings are perhaps my favorite design of the entire Honeybee Collection! Rough, warm crystal points set in royal bezels, hand-forged poppies, and brass pollen granules. Fit for queen bees! ✨ If you have a favorite design I have shared, please tell me! I would love to know what has caught your eye. ✖️Honeybee Collection Shop Update: TONIGHT at 7pm EST! ✖️
✨ Naturalist Bracelet✨ Since our time here in Ithaca, I have watched my fella develop an even more deep love for nature, especially that which exists in the tiny spaces: signal evolution in flowers, the blink patterns of fireflies, the mosses found in boreal forests, the lifespan of a worker bee. He has slowly and all at once become a proper naturalist: carefully preserving the insects he finds in glass cases, carrying eastern plant identification books, commenting on his need for butterfly nets, lamenting every moment indoors. In their own way, honeybees are like little naturalists. Collecting all summer long, sun-warmed and rain tousled. Returning home to organize their harvests into neat little compartments, preserving sunshine in the from of honey. And so this design is an ode to naturalism in silver and stone. A single honeybee is set within a branch frame on a solid black background, resembling insects mounted and preserved upon black velvet. Surrounding the the bees are little drops of honey colored citrine, representing that good work of preservation done by the bees themselves. There will be two Naturalist cuffs and four Naturalist necklaces in tomorrow's shop update!
