Honey can be used for many things, including as a material to make jewelry. Or at least that’s what you’d think looking at the honey jewelry created by Charming Little Fox.
Charmin Little Fox is a studio run by Colorado-native Stephanie, who uses bees and honey as an inspiration for one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. Her works give the impression that a piece of metal has been dipped in honey and the honey just froze, creating a necklace piece or an earring. But in reality, Stephanie uses resin to achieve this astonishing effect.
Each of Stephanie’s pieces starts as a metal base. In most cases, the bases are made to resemble honeycombs, following the honey theme. Then, she covers the base with a special resin, which she gets from Japan, shapes the “drip”, and lets it harden.
In a recent interview, Stephanie revealed that her love for bees gave her the idea to do this kind of jewelry. As a matter of fact, she’s so inspired by these hardworking little insects that she even considered becoming a beekeeper at one point. While life took her on another part, she still found a way to take care of them by donating 10 percent of her earnings to the Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association.
