Don’t Step On A Bee Day -Tuesday 10th July
The buzz on the street is that bees are pretty important to this little rock we call home. The bee population in some countries has halved over the last decade and their pollination discos affect far more than just honey production .
Our busy worker mates are essential to a healthy environment and the diversity of the food that we eat. Friends of the Earth wax lyrical about their importance and what we can do to help save their depleting populations. So, here I am showing you some be(e)auties we can be(e)jewel ourselves with as a reminder to not step on our fuzzy friends. Hurting them, hurts us in more ways than one.
Alex Monroe with his world renowned Bumblebee necklace is a modern British classic.
This childlike bee drawing on a signet ring from Monroe is still fit for a Queen.
Beehive handmade brings us this dainty piece. Be(e)cause simplicity is sometimes the way.
Hopefully the bees were finished with this honeycomb when the jeweller snaffled them for this organic tessellation treat.
So let’s attempt to halt the plight of the bumble bee, get inspired by their busyiness and make a beeline for your jewellery bench or one of our courses.
