The most important pollinators, Bees are thought of as symbols of productivity. They can be signs that we are doing too much, or maybe not enough. Bees can serve as gentle reminders for us to find balance in our lives. They have a strong work ethic, but also stop to smell the roses.
I was given a small container of honey bees from a client in Edmonton who is a beekeeper. Heather lost her hive, and asked me if I could cast one for her. I've always focused on insect wings, so this presented a unique challenge. I'm so grateful for this piece, and since making my honey bee pendent in 2019, I am rarely without it. It reminds me to work hard, and take time.
