Sweet as nectar, this blue-banded bee mini brooch, hand-assembled from patterned and textured resins plus hand-painted details on the wings, will stand out in any field of flowers.

33mm x 54mm (H x W)


" Never at home amongst larger colonies, the female blue-banded bee is more at home in a little burrow all her own."

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 clasps are made from plated brass. 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.

Elizabeth (Melbourne, AU)
Busy Blue Banded Bee

I am enraptured by my adorable bee brooch. It had led to conversations about Erstwilder as well as about the (relatively unknown and solo living) native Blue Banded Bee: my favourite bee. So extra points for raising awareness 🐝

Gayle H. (Sydney, AU)
Bee Magnificent

I bought this Brooch for my Mum for her birthday because she loves bees so much and she absolutely loved it.
When I took her out shopping and to lunch over the weekend she wore the brooch and it looked fantastic.
Thank you Erstwilder for making so many people happy with your brooches.
