These Great Yellow Bumblebee drop earrings in sterling silver feature cheerful bees in vivid enamel colourways, beautifully framed by polished silver wings, and hanging from sterling silver hooks. Each earring design measures approximately 12mm wide and has an overall drop length of 30mm.
Orkney is one of only a few places where the Great Yellow bumblebee can still be found, making it one of Britain's rarest species of bumblebee. As a result, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust is working on a project dedicated solely to saving this particular species.
Sheila Fleet has developed this special collection to closely resemble the markings of the Great Yellow bumblebee, with its distinctive yellow tail.
