Living in London in my 20s, I kept bees at the bottom of the garden and was soon captivated by these wonderful and very beautiful creatures. When it came to designing a new Lily Blanche collection, the bee was an obvious choice. I wanted to design a pretty, delicate bee and am delighted with the outcome. With two of my children working and studying in the great city of Manchester, where the bee is the symbol of the city’s creativity and industry, the Bee Collection has taken on even more significance and meaning for me. Invoke the lazy, hazy days of summer with this lovely honeycomb locket in sterling silver with bee detail in 18 carat rose gold vermeil. The locket, which is engravable, opens to take two photographs or a tiny keepsake and is hallmarked in Edinburgh. Layer the locket with our lovely little bee pendant for a thoroughly modern look. Locket measures 30mm high by 25mm wide. Bee measures 16mm x 13mm. Matching bangles and earrings available. Also available with gold detailing.
