Silver Bee Brooch


Image of Silver Bee Brooch

This beautiful bee brooch is a silver plated brass casting. The bee is very stylised, with an almost Art Deco appearance. The silver plating has been oxidised, or blackened, to bring out some of the great detail and strong lines.

The brooch measures 55mm (over two inches) at its widest point, so is a great size. The brooch has a silver plated pin with secure lobster fastening.
