This 2023 Fan Favourites edition of our Queen Bee brooch has been hand-assembled from a mix of tasteful textured resins and brought to life with hand-painted details. Originally released in 2014, this is just the 2nd edition of our benevolent ruler.

63mm x 66mm (H x W)


For without flowers there would be no bees and without bees there would be no flowers!

Each piece is made from laser-cut and layered resin, hand assembled, hand painted and released in limited quantities. As all of our designs are lovingly glued, assembled and painted by hand, there can be very slight variations and blemishes from piece to piece. Due to the hand-mixed nature of the resins in our designs, it is also common and normal to find tiny flecks or bubbles in the resin layers. All in all, this just makes each piece as special and unique as you are.

Brooch clasp is made with 100% stainless steel pin and plated brass screws. Components have changed over time and older designs may be made with other materials. If you have any questions at all, please email the team at hello@erstwilder.com.

Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.
