Electroformed Carpenter Bee Necklace with Citrine, Aura Quartz, and Moonstone
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 Aura Quartz and Rainbow Moonstone are set on the bees body and a Citrine between Swarovski crystals adorn is the top of the bail. The pendant is double hung on an 18” antique copper cable chain. Oxidized finish and sealed with a clear protective lacquer.
