"Bee Mandala" Ancient Fossilized Mammoth Tusk Ivory, Garnet, 14kt Gold Fill and Sterling Silver Pendant


The treasured garnet and four bees necklace design is inspired by a Mandala, an age-old and deeply spiritual circular symbol that represents the universe and life's eternal oneness.

The Egyptians saw the bee as a symbol of the soul. This miraculous and ecologically essential creature is also seen as a vital symbol of community and diligence. The Mandala is a traditional Buddhist and Hindu representation of the universe, a deeply spiritual shape that is a meditational image of the eternal oneness in all of life.

The four bees necklace celebrates one of the universe's smallest, yet most dynamic, creatures. The bee is the king of pollinators, ensuring the flowering and fruit producing plants' survival, and so the survival of all of us along the food chain.

The red garnet, a heart stone associated with love and passion, is the heart of this mammoth ivory necklace. Garnet highlights the mammoth ivory bees' natural earthy tones as well as the rich yellow in the bees' 14k gold fill wing and body accents.

The fossilized mammoth tusk ivory used to carve the bees is over 15,000 years old, dating back to when the last of the great mammoths roamed the earth. It has lain buried for centuries where it created its cream to honey or deep cocoa hue. To touch a piece of mammoth ivory is to remember how we can lose our animal friends to extinction'a threat that is very real for the honeybee of today.

This pendant comes with an 18" sterling silver 1.1 mm box chain with lobster clasp.
