Honeycomb Jewelry – Fossilized Ivory and Citrine Honeycomb Necklace

Honeycomb, which is built from glands along the female worker bees’ bodies, is the inspiration behind this geometrically beautiful honeycomb necklace. Actual honeycomb starts as a cell that the bees heat up, turning the waxy honeycomb molten. The circular cell walls then coalesce to a flat surface, forming the perfect hexagonal shape we associate with honeycomb.

The beehive itself has been used as a religious symbol throughout history, and the hexagon with its six sides symbolizes harmony, truth, and balance. Our designers chose citrine for this piece of honeycomb jewelry because of its honey-like color and because it is believed to hold the properties of personal power and good fortune. Our bee jewelry is created to commemorate the intrepid and selfless bee as well as empower its owner with a sense of community, diligence, and strength.

The top teardrop is carved from fossilized walrus ivory, which has lain in the earth for some 300 to 5,000 years. This ancient ivory is an important economic and cultural asset to the native Yupik of St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. They gather it for trade, sale, and for their carvings. All fossilized ivory varies in tone based on the compounds in the earth surrounding it. For this reason, each of our handmade honeycomb necklaces will be unique.
