Are you ready to bee the Queen Bee wherever you go? Bee the sweetest thing with these translucent honeybee earrings!
These light-as-a-bee statement earrings feature fuzzy little buzzboys (girls actually - all worker bees are female!) in the middle of a honey coloured acrylic. "The transparency to these earrings just really helps make these earrings look like sap and honey" said Katherine.
They are just the right size, not too big and not too small, to wear to any occasion. Bee the professional queen of the boardroom by dressing these up, or dress them down as a super fun addition to your casual outfit. They also make a great gift for nature lovers and bee obsessed humans.
Lightweight and comfortable, these honeycomb bee earrings are handmade in Australia, the only continent in the world still free of the dreaded verroa mite!
Story behind the design
Fun bee facts: all worker bees are female and communicate by dancing - so get these girls dancing.
Wait, wait wait, they dance?!?!
Heck yeah! These ladies know how to wiggle after what their (royal) mama gave them.
Honeybees have evolved an extraordinary form of communication known as the ‘waggle’ dance. They even have a special dance floor (close to the entrance of the hive) to perform. Moving in a fluid ‘figure 8’ motion, a honeybee will communicate to her sisters the direction and amount of pollen/nectar available through the intensity and timing of her ‘waggles’ and fluttering of her wings. (Text borrowed from PBS)
And while naturalists have known that bees dance for a very long time - even Aristotle had something to say about it - the ‘secret code’ of the dance itself was only deciphered in 1967 by Karl Von Frisch in a paper that would eventually earn him a noble prize!
These handmade earrings are made from laser cut acrylic and are available with hypo-allergenic stainless steel posts, as clip ons, or with a locally sourced sterling silver posts making them the perfect jewellery for sensitive ears.
