Steampunk Filigree Bee Necklace
This delicate silver bee has landed on a vintage watch movement and is enticed by the glimmer of the Swarovski crystals.
I have created this delightful steampunk bee necklace in a number of colours. You can choose the one that best coordinates with your wardrobe colour palette.
For a long period this lovely filigree setting was unavailable and many customers have asked that it could be in stock again. I was very pleased that it has become available.
Your steampunk necklace will arrive nicely boxed for gift giving. It comes complete with an 18″ rhodium plated stainless steel rope chain with lobster clasp.
Please expect the watch movement, placement of the little bee and Swarovski crystals to vary somewhat. No two are exactly the same.
The honey bee appears frequently in folklore and history. My favourite is from ancient Egyptian mythology:
Bees grew from the tears of the sun god Ra as raindrops fell on the desert sand
I have used a vintage Russian watch movement as the base for this pendant. The mechanism is named Slava which translated to ‘Glory’ in English.
This watch movement is rather unusual as it has two barrels. I like it as I can remove one of the wheels, do a bit of work with my dremel tool, and a Swarovski crystal will fit nicely in the space.
I love to take things apart and I have dismantled many of these watches just to get to the beautiful hidden pieces inside!
