This necklace features both new and recycled jewelry parts. The brass bee and the pale green Indian glass beaded chain are new. The filigree base under the bee comes from a piece of broken jewelry from a secondhand store, and the flowers are from another piece of broken jewelry I bought in an antique shop.
The brass bee’s wingspan is just under 1-1/4 inches across. The full centerpiece is about 1-3/4 by 1-3/4 inches.
