    Cute, cute, cute! Such a unique design and color combination. The queen bee with her crown is a perfect way to finish it.

    How fun! The lampwork beads are perfect for your bee theme! I also like the metal flower & bee spacers you used in this design. I never knew bumble bees actually had such defined black & yellow stripes until I moved back East for a while–what an eye-opener. This will ‘bee’ a blast to wear! :)
