Electroformed Carpenter Bee Necklace with Rainbow Moonstone and Garnet
Handmade necklace created with a real Carpenter Bee that was dried, preserved, and electroplated in a thick shell of copper. The bee remains forever intact inside. A small Garnet adorns the Bee, and a Rainbow Moonstone is set at the top of the honeycomb bail. The pendant is double hung on an 18” antique copper cable chain. Oxidized finish and sealed with a clear protective lacquer.
