Inspiration for my Bee Ring
I am lucky to have a wild cottage garden, full of flowers – and it is such a thrill to see a lovely fat bumblebee buzzing around visiting individual flowers. That said, I didn’t actually consider modelling bees at firstas they were already so popular in jewellery. But I was asked so many times that I eventually gave in. And I’m glad that I did, as my little bees have enjoyed a great deal of attention since their debut. Particularly this Bee Ring, depicting a buff-tailed bumblebee on one of their favourite flowers (in my garden at least) – the Oxeye Daisy.
The image that I have in my head, when bumblebees are mentioned, is a little fuzzy bumblebee with its wings tucked in, which thankfully differs from many designs of bee jewellery. When approaching the ring, I contemplated a full-sized Queen Bee Ring. But modelling caution, and my love of the bee and daisy combo, drew me to this design. A very comfortable ring to wear, it now has very many admirers. …And I did eventually model a Queen Bee Ring – so now the choice is yours.
What my customers say:
“OH MY GOODNESS EMMA!!!! Just got home from work and it was in the mailbox! I wouldn’t think it was possible, but it is even better in person!!! It was worth every penny and the wait!!!! It is absolutely amazing and I am never taking it off.”
