This honeycomb is cast in bronze (using the lost wax technique) from a real specimen. The honeycomb pendant is sculptural in nature, but it is also lightweight and comfortable. The casting is hung from a fine red brass chain and sealed to preserve its vibrancy.
It took me a while, but I finally located and put together materials for earrings similar to these: white silk flowers with purple tips, earring hooks with rhinestones, conical findings, thin chain, balls (6 small for ends of chains, 2 bigger to hold petals in place under cones), and pins. All metal antiqued. Love them!
