Bees are "The Bee's Knees" in Jewelry Trends

What? The bee's knees? Well, we think bees are the bee's knees, especially when used in jewelry design. If you have not heard of this expression before, it means great, wonderful, excellent! And that is exactly how we feel about bee-inspired and bee-bedecked designs. Adding a bee to your artistic creation brings a touch of whimsy into the design. You can create a very playful design using bees or a very elegant design—it is all about what you pair with the bees. Some of our favorite bee beads and charms come from artisan brands such as Nunn Design and Raven's Journey. There are also 2-hole Czech glass Honeycomb beads which are very fun to work with and help carry on the bead theme throughout your design.

Oh yes. Being of “a certain” vintage, I well remember the bees’ knees! And your bees are, well, charming! Thanks for all your inspirational design ideas and also for the constant quality of your products. They’ve given me the incentive to get back to my jewelry desk and return to making lovely pieces.
