The Birds and the Bee

My vegetable garden is an explosion of flowers just waiting to be pollinated,  so I thought it was time to pay homage to the humble honey bee. There has been a lot of bee dreaming (and reading) around here and ultimately, I’ve decided it’s not in our cards just yet. But there is always room for a few bees in the shop.

As for the earrings…yes, I put a bird on it. These were a custom order for a gal who is “very asymmetrical.” Therefore, she gets two  different silhouettes. I love that concept (thanks Denise!), and might make a few more pairs of mismatched earrings with other critters on them.

It’s summer goodness all around (in my corner of the world, anyway). What are you dreaming about?

    Those are gorgeous! You have so much talent!!
    I love the asymmetrical idea too.
    I have been thinking about and drawing bees a lot lately. I think they are underappreciated for their beauty and for what they do for us and the world.

    Really gorgeous – love the different birds! Bees are on our mind here at the moment too – I have dreamed for ages of my own and am just about to start helping a neighbour with his as a first step in the right direction…very, very exciting! Have a good weekend (full of making!?) See you in class! xx
