REMAINS OF REAL BEES CAST IN STERLING SILVER

Waxed queen bee
Master of Honeybee and Milkweed Pod

With delicate wax work, we use the remains of real honeybees and craft beautiful sterling silver jewelry.

After dipping the bees in a light liquid wax, we delicately spread the wings and legs.
Our creative objective is to capture the bees in flight or put them in natural settings.

We create the master – an exquisite, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry – using the lost wax casting method. Next, a mold of vulcanized rubber is made which can be injected with wax over and over. We cast again, and finish the pieces to a┬álustrous shine.

All silverwork is proudly performed in the state of Michigan by members of the Michigan Silversmiths Guild.
