A beekeeping friend of mine gave me a hunk of honeycomb to render wax from!  I’ve been using synthetic wax to lube my saw blades/drill bits/etc., but this should be fun to try.  From what I’ve read, I probably wont have to filter it quite as much, since the hive is very new.

Three new “Moon, Sun, and Stars” pieces up in the shop- two necklaces (one of them has purple labradorite!) and one set of earrings.  

I had a custom order for a pair of these earrings and I decided that I should make more of them! 

These all have labradorite, sunstone, and moonstone
