The necklace and the brooch “The Beauty in the bees” was made with the idea to get people’s attention to the problems which these amazing beautiful creatures are facing in nowadays world. Unfortunately, the threat to the bees is coming from the mankind; only during last few years more than 250 millions of bees were killed because of use of pesticides on the plants. Bees are one of the most important animals to the Earth’s entire planetary ecology, and our, humans, life depends on their population well-being.
My necklace represents the harmony in the nature – between plants, animals and humans – which bees create. And the image of the bee itself is very close and dear to many artists (“working like a bee”), and the bees are truly masters in their important art. “There is one masterpiece, the hexagonal cell, that touches perfection. No living creature, not even man, has achieved, in the center of his sphere, what the bee has achieved in her own: and were some one from another world to descend and ask of the earth the most perfect creation of the logic of life, we should needs have to offer the humble comb of honey”. – Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life of Bee, 1924.
This necklace is made out of rare and precious beads, and is mainly made out of tiny antique Italian glass seed beads sizes 18-24, amazingly beautiful baltic amber cabochons and other materials.
