1. Empty Hive Honeycomb – hand-enamelled necklace
2. Adult Lemon Fluke – hand-enamelled necklace
3. Sensitive Orange Phasmid – hand-enamelled necklace
This piece is from the Empty Hives collection, haunting, elegant hand-enamelled jewelry about the mysterious disappearance of bees from their hives this past year. This massive die off of pollinators has profoundly effected agriculture and while entomologists have speculated as to why the bees disappeared, there is still no singular conclusion. The necklace is made using lead free enamel on copper with a sterling silver chain and toggle clasp.
