Apiphiligree. n. 1: an ornate charm for beekeepers and those who
would befriend or protect bees. 2: a reliquary of the Thriae, the
three bee-prophets of ancient Greece who scried the future in
handfuls of small stones.
Etymology: a Modern English portmanteau derived
one who loves bees (from the Latin api, bees, and the
love) and filigree, ornate metal lacework sometimes
tiny stones or beads (French, originally as filigrane,
Latin filum, thread and granum, grain or seed).
Glowing Baltic amber from Lithuania is paired with firepolished glass and Swarovski reminiscent
of an overgrown garden in late summer. Vines of harvest gold and bright brass swirl
around a dainty brass bee with wings outstretched in flight.
10% of the proceeds from the Apiphiligree series will be donated
to the honeybee research fund of the New Hampshire Beekeepers' Association.
Currently sized to fit a 7.5" wrist, but can be adjusted up to an inch in either direction; please specify desired length below.
