These Great Yellow Bumblebee stud earrings in sterling silver feature cheerful bees in vivid enamel colourways, beautifully framed by polished silver wings. Each earring design measures approximately 10mm by 11mm.
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. Each purchase also comes with a free wildflower seed mix‡, to help grow bee-friendly gardens.
† 5% of the nett purchase price (excluding VAT) is donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust when you buy this jewellery.
‡ Seed mix offer only available to orders delivered within the UK.
