Regular price £26.00 £26.00 Sale

With the plight of the bee so prominent, this brooch is a timely reminder of the importance of these beautiful creatures! All the intricate detail of the insect is captured in the fine embroidery of this stunning piece.

Closely resembling the real thing, this beautiful embroidered and hand-painted brooch is crafted in a ginger velvet with black detail to create the real life texture of the Bumblebee.
Based on the Common Carder Bee, which is commonly found in gardens, woods, on heaths and on farmland. They are larger than honeybees, but they don't produce as much honey. However, they are very important pollinators.

It measure 4.5cm x 6cm and is presented in a gift box for giving to your favourite nature lover!

Due to the hand-crafted nature of the brooch, some very slight variations may occur. It is quite flexible and robust and some bending of the wings is natural during wear.
The wings can easily be reshaped by hand, either by flattening or by squeezing the top wings together to enhance the three-dimensional look. To keep the brooch in good condition, avoid submerging in water and subjecting to high temperatures or prolonged periods of direct sunlight.
