Bee Jewelry

I don't know why, but I've been in to bees lately. I would like to collect bee things to display in my house, but they are hard to find! I haven't been able to find bee jewelry, but I have been able to make bee jewelry. Actually, I put these three together. The middle bee was one that I ordered online, and then I bought the stone at the craft store for not very much. I LOVE it!
The yellow and green stones I bought on sale, and the two together were $ You can notice that there is some kind of carving on the top. The bees I added. I had bought them in a package of like 6 for only about $2. I am cheap, but I think they turned out really nice.
The chain is another story. I found it when I was walking one day. It had some kind of dog tag with a girl's picture engraved on it. It was in the middle of the street, and I had no way of finding the owner. I got rid of the picture, and just kept the chain. I had to shorten it. I think if it had been something expensive I would have taken out an ad in the paper in the lost and found. But since it wasn't, and the money to advertise would have exceeded the cost of the chain, I just kept it. Anyway, I have kind of gotten away from "fruo-fruo" jewelry, and I really like this sort of back to nature type. :) By the way, I wanted to check the spelling on "frou-frou", and I found that it is actually a French word that means "frilly, ornamental, fancy, elaborate". :) I have decided that I am definitely not "frou-frou". :D
As I look at this picture, I think I could have left out one ring. I think I'll go back and take one out.
