Bumblebee Lapel Pin

£55.00

Whenever I think of bumblebees it is this image of one sitting there with it’s wings tucked in that first pops into my mind.

The humble bumblebee is a much loved part of my collection – its size making it ideal for earrings, lapel pins, cufflinks or delicate necklaces.

Inspiration for my Bumblebee Lapel Pin

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. Bees were, for me, the first of the more popular creatures [in jewellery] that I was asked to model but was terrified of trying. What if my model wasn’t good enough? That’s where my “Drawer of Shame” comes in: the holding place for all unfinished and not yet good-enough pieces. Luckily – these cute little bees dodged the drawer. Instead they made it all the way to top of my customers’ favourites list! This bumblebee lapel pin show a little bee with its wings tucked in – the vision I always have when thinking about these most loved of insects.

Bumblebees particularly enjoy the oxeye daisies in my garden. So this is a union that I celebrate with my bee & daisy collection – which began with the Bee and Daisy Ring, and continues to grow. Personally, I wear my bumblebee earrings as an odd pair: a solitary bee matched perfectly with a little daisy.
