Bumblebee Bee Necklace, Fused Glass AAA Quartz Cubes Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The meaningful SAVE THE BEES handmade necklace is a wonderful, one of a kind jewelry gift for the woman who loves bees and is concerned about their plummeting numbers worldwide.  The unique necklace features an artisan fused glass bumblebee pendant, exquisite clear quartz gemstone cubes, black Swarovski crystals and copper.  The delightful bumblebee pendant was created from several layers of hand cut clear glass.  In the middle of the rectangular pendant, a jolly-looking bumblebee was outlined in copper wire and the body was filled in with black and yellow striped glass.  The pendant was kiln fired for 12 hours to fuse the glass together into one piece.  The edges are silky smooth.  The front of the pendant is slightly rounded where the back is flat.  As you can see in the photos, there are a few air bubbles in the pendant, a delightful addition.  Three copper jump rings securely fasten the bumblebee pendant to the main body of the necklace.  *** Please note: the edges of the pendant are clear glass.  In many of the photos, the edges reflected my clothing or the body of the bumblebee showing up as dark edges that aren’t really there.
 
To perfectly complement the bumblebee pendant, crystal clear quartz cubes and black Swarovski crystals were used.  The quartz is AAA quality, the highest highest gemstone ranking that can be given.  They capture and radiate light, gleaming at every movement when the necklace is worn.  In the front of the necklace are three groupings of 5 quartz cubes, each separated by small copper beads for wonderful drape.  Between each grouping is a single sparkling 6 mm Swarovski crystal bicone in the darkest black, called “jet.”  The crystals are separated from the quartz cubes by small copper disc spacers and small copper beads.  Ten quartz cubes make up each side of the back of the necklace, each also separated by a small copper bead.  A solid copper toggle clasp with a swirled design finishes the necklace securely.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the SAVE THE BEES pendant necklace was created for the woman who is perhaps a gardener, plants flowers for bees and loves to wear one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Throughout the history of man, bees have been a symbol of creativity, teamwork, communication and fertility; they also represent divine love and creation, that everything in life fits into a greater plan, purpose and place.  Quartz of any type is said to be the universal healing stone and promotes hope, happiness and optimism while awakening us to the beauty of nature; it is believed to be a “Stone of Power” by being able to bring the energy of the stars into the soul.  Even though man made, crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  

 
The SAVE THE BEES artisan bumblebee pendant necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
