Honey Comb Disc Earrings
Hexagons are the most efficient shape on earth, the extreme efficiency of honey bees to build the comb together, keep it clean and utilize it for their various needs is remarkable. There are a variety of stages throughout a bee’s short lifetime. A single bee will transform from egg to larvae to pupa to nurse bee to worker bee to forager bee. Each stage utilizes the honey comb in a different way and in a healthy hive, the bees know when they need to transition from one role into another to maintain the health of the hive.

The Art Deco Collection invokes imagination and expands the horizons of the mind. My hometown of Tulsa is home to many surviving examples of 1920's Art Deco architecture. As a child I loved these buildings before I understood anything about art and design. Like the architects of Art Deco, my hope is when you wear this jewelry your imagination is ignited, your mind is expanded and your spirit is elevated to new heights. - Rachel Rose
