This Great Yellow Bumblebee pendant in sterling silver features a cheerful bee in vivid enamel colourways, beautifully framed by polished silver wings. The Bumblebee design measures approximately 12mm by 16mm and hangs from a sterling silver curb chain.
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. A donation† from each sale from this collection goes towards supporting the important work done by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
† 5% of the nett purchase price (excluding VAT) is donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust when you buy this jewellery.
