Busy as a bee

About this design:

A garden theme bracelet. The bees and butterflies are busy in my yard. The bees especially like dill- which I let grow those big flower heads. This kind of nature inspired me and soothes my soul!


Polymer clay cuff. 2/0 matubo beads, 8/0’s and 6/0’s seed beads, assorted Czech glass beads. A mood bee bead . One of LB’s fancy chains. And a silver bee charm that t patina’d. Silver findings a lobster clasp that I patina’d.

    A great tribute to the gardens that are flourishing everywhere! I have not planted anything…yet. I have some snapdragon seeds…my favorite flower. I had better get busy…my neighbor has promised to help me.

    Great piece with all the bees & flowers! The gold drop chain is a nice way to add a little flash & jingle–perfect element for the theme. I also love how you painted a few of the pieces, bringing them to the fore. Bees are wonderfully busy little creatures that are so important to our ecosystem–I enjoying watching them pollinate our garden.

    You’ve got rich Earth tones in this bracelet and the bracelet bar is gorgeous. I didn’t know bees like dill.
