Filigree Honeybee Shawl Stick
A beautiful filigree honeybee rendered in gleaming white brass, the sweetest closure yet from the team at JUL Designs! The intricate honeybee measures almost 1-1/4" long and tops a 4" shawl stick. All handmade Fair Trade in Indonesia.
According to JUL co-owner, designer and anthropologist Laura Bellows, "We started working on this design over a year ago. We began with a realistic design but our wax worker, who was to carve the wax that would become a metal master in the lost-wax casting process, passed on the project saying that our detail was to fine. Several simpler iterations were similarly rejected. In a moment of frustration and insight I said - let's just make it in filigree! My Balinese creative partner, Agus Astradhi, can do filigree designs in his sleep. Filigree is a conventional Balinese visual language that Agus has so deeply internalized that it is virtually effortless for him to come up with beautiful swirling designs and delicate lines. We are delighted with the results and we think you will be too."
