Help the Cause
Hello bee lovers! My name is Emily Austin. I have been designing jewelry for the past 24 years in Scottsdale, Arizona, specializing in hand setting tiny Swarovski crystals in my pieces.
Several months ago friends of mine lost one of their beautiful daughters who was just 21 years old in a tragic accident. Her name was Danielle Côte. She was a beautiful young lady inside and out who loved the birds, bees, flowers and trees, and wanted to save the planet! Danielle worked at a nursery and was very involved in spreading the importance of saving the bees and the planet. When Danielle passed, the family asked for donations to be made to the Honeybee Conservancy or to plant trees in her name.
When Danielle’s family asked me if I made a bee necklace, I knew I had to do something. Therefore, I designed a bee to comfort her family and help raise money and awareness for a very good cause in Danielle’s name. Each bee necklace is made by hand with sterling silver over plated with rhodium to prevent tarnishing or gold fill chain and gold vermeil charms. You may choose your favorite Swarovski crystal color in the center of the flower charm. The bee pendant sells on my website for $95. Fifteen dollars of each necklace will be immediately donated to your favorite bee or gardening organization.
