I suppose that it goes without saying that this is one of the most unique carved wood necklaces you will ever see..with two big black, white, and green bumble bees! In my 40 years of collecting vintage jewelry Ive seen a lot of animal and insect carved wood necklaces, but never one like this! It was not made for bee keepers or people love honey but rather, a unique earthy design for ladies who are nature lovers.
The necklace is a chunky style with natural light creme colored wood beads and leaf green painted beads. The two large bees are fully dimensional and are the same on the fronts as on the backs. The necklace is 31" long or 78 cm and the largest wood beads are 7/8" wide, or 2.3 cm. The bees are 2 3/4" long or 6.8 cm. The entire necklace is in pristine clean like new condition. I have owned it since it was new in the 1970s and it has never been worn. All of the beads are perfect with no wear or other imperfections.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
