Bee Jewelry - Citrine and Fossilized Ivory Bee Pendant

Have you seen that magnificent waggle dance that honeybees do? It's how they communicate important information to each other regarding the direction and distance of nectar, pollen, or water. A single honey bee will visit 50-100 flowers on a single trip out of the hive and in her lifetime make only 1/12th a teaspoon of honey.
The bodies of the bees are hand carved from fossilized walrus ivory, which is 500-3,000 years old. It comes from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, where the native Yupik have exclusive rights to gather and sell this ancient material. Fossilized walrus ivory takes on a range of tones from cream to deep cocoa, depending on the minerals surrounding it in the soil.
