A brooch with an important message! Bees are responsible for 80% of the pollination of nearly three quarters of the plants that produce 90% of the world’s food, and their numbers are steadily declining. Let people know that we need to 'Save the Bees'.
This brooch was laser cut in Buninyong, Australia, using the eco-friendly wood of the Alder Tree, before being hand painted and sealed with a jewellers grade resin. Alder trees have a rapid growth rate and help increase nitrogen and organic matter in the soil, which assists in the improvement of soils with poor fertility.
This brooch measures approximately 5 cms high by 3.2 cms wide.
