Unique jewellery and keepsakes with real Australian flowers inside.
Summer Bee Copper Pendant
Summer Bee Copper Pendant
A gorgeous copper pendant with a tiny bee encased inside on a bed of real Australian. The flowers are collected from my garden and local florists then carefully preserved and turned into beautiful jewellery.
Inside this pendant: bee, Ixodia achillaeoides and Verticordia.
Handcrafted with love, the pendant measures approximately 3cm across. It hangs on a soft, waxed cotton cord (which is vegan-friendly.) The cord length is adjustable, with the longest length at approximately 31 inches.
Please note, my intention with the creation of my pieces would never be to encourage the killing or harming of any animal, but rather encouraging people to appreciate the beauty of them and all they have to offer us.

Bees are easily amongst some of the most important insects to humans on Mother Earth. They are unfortunately taken for granted all too often, but the fact is that we couldn’t live the life we do without these hard little workers. Bees (along with the help of other pollinators such as butterflies and beetles) pollinate more than 80% of the plants grown for human consumption. Directly and indirectly they play a role in everything we eat and are vital to creating and maintaining the habitats and ecosystems that we and many other animals rely on. Bees are having a hard time and their numbers are rapidly decreasing, so next time you see a bee in need, please don’t just pass them by - a simple offering of some sugar water can go a long way. And if you’re able to - garden with plants that attract the bees and create a habitat for them to enjoy. (There are wonderful resources for any bee need to knows online.)
Due to the handmade nature of this work, some slight imperfections such as bubbles, bumps and small holes may occur, but are unique characteristics of the pieces. As each piece is completely made by hand, they will have their own unique beauty and may differ slightly from the images provided.
These are artisanal pieces, perfect for individuals that love one of a kind designs.
Please note that whilst resin is strong & durable, it should be treated with care as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. For long lasting use please keep pieces out of direct sun exposure & do not submerge in water. To return pieces to their original shine, softly buff with a microfibre polishing cloth. Avoid use of chemicals/perfumes near pieces.
Due to the nature of raw copper, exposure to oxygen and/or water through every day use can change the colouring of the ring slightly. This ageing is completely harmless and quite attractive, however if you do prefer the bright shine of new copper, you can buff it with a soft polishing cloth. Please avoid using any jewellery cleaning chemicals near the resin.
In your parcel you will receive the pendant, beautifully packaged inside a kraft gift box, ready for gifting, or storing your pieces.
