Amber Honeybee Necklace
|A Smithsonian Institution Exclusive|
With honeybees and honey-hued amber sharing a 40-million-year history, this sculptural pendant is a brilliant marriage of natural elements. Handmade in Poland by highly skilled artisans, the head and tail of this Amber Honeybee Necklace are delicately fashioned from gem-quality Baltic amber in rich shades of honey, cream and lemon. The finely worked body, openwork wings and included omega chain are oxidized sterling silver. Natural variations will occur. Pendant, 2.25" x 2.25". Chain with lobster claw clasp, 18"l.
