Copper Bee Handmade Sterling Silver Necklace Czech Glass Honey Drop
Sweet Handmade Bee Necklace: There is a lot going on in this handmade necklace. First, I used copper metal clay to form the bee that was fired in a kiln to fire it to solid copper. Then I hand sanded, tumbled in a tumbler for further polishing, then set with sterling silver prongs that I soldered into a handcut and textured sterling back plate. The prongs subtly capture the bee at natural points in the shape to keep it secured in the setting.
To complete the necklace, I antiqued the pendant and finished it with a beautiful solid sterling rolo chain. I used a sterling lobster clasp, a one-inch extender, and a wire-wrapped drop of amber Czech glass to finish it off. The pretty bee is just under 1" wide and the pendant including silver backplate is 1-1/4" wide and 7/8" tall. The necklace can be secured at 18" or 19" inches, depending on your preference. Either way, the amber teardrop bead serves as a drop of honey to sweeten the necklace.
As with all my handmade pieces, this necklace will come packaged in a recycled paper jewelry box and padded mailer. For this piece, I'll upgrade the First Class shipping cost to Priority Mail and insure at purchase price for not additional cost. Please review my Policies page for details on purchasing from this ArtFire shop.
Thanks for browsing my online studio! I am available to make custom bee-themed or other jewelry pieces, so please send me a message if there is something specific you're interested in.
