Sterling silver box chain necklace with etched double hexagonal honeycomb pendant. The central etched bee honeycomb has a brushed matte finish and hangs within a larger beaten polished silver honeycomb. Inspired by Manchester’s famous worker bee symbol.
Stephanie’s pieces are influenced by the patterns and textures of both the natural and man-made environments that surround her.
Working from her studio on the outskirts of Greater Manchester in Cheshire, Stephanie is a member of the Manchester Jeweller’s Network , a local collective of emerging and established jewellers.
Comprised of etched and oxidised sterling silver, her designs combine strong geometric shapes with a sense of movement and fluidity.
Chain length: 17”
Pendant: 25 mm
The worker bee was officially added to the Manchester Coat of Arms in 1842, and has since represented the hard work of every single Mancunian since the Industrial Revolution. It can be spotted all over the city, from lamp posts to large scale murals. The gallery even has its own version which can be seen adorning the walls of Gallery 7.
