Bumblebee Brooch Tutorial

If you like Entomologic jewelry you will fall in love with the Bumblebee Brooch. Wear it as a brooch or as a focal piece on a simple chain or beaded necklace. This project sprang from a passion for designing flowers with beads and since bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants, and are the major type of pollinator in ecosystems that contain flowering plants, I thought I should design a bee. The body of the bee is worked in a sculptural technique and the wings in brick stitch (you could turn the wing charts on their side and work them in peyote stitch if you so choose.) But, it is easier to make them in brick stitch.
