Designer works with beauty brand to save the UK’s bee population
British jewellery designer Alex Monroe has announced a collaboration with beauty brand Burt’s Bees in an effort to help maintain the existence of the humble bumble bee.
In conjunction with the launch of Burt’s Bees Radiance SPF Day Lotion Monroe will produce a beautiful one off Honey Bee and Flower ring. The unique ring is gold-plated silver, with a trio of diamonds nestled in small flowers and a larger flower set with a honey sapphire. Burt’s Bees and Alex Monroe will be auctioning one of these exclusive rings at www.alexmonroe.com, with all proceeds going to the British Beekeepers Association to help the plight of the Bees.
Bees have been a constant muse for Alex Monroe who is renowned for taking his design influence from the stripy insects. His Bumblebee Necklace is now a classic, and a firm fashion favourite. For this collaboration, he specifically looked at the Honey Bee, and crafted it by hand with all of his trademark detail. Following on from the limited edition Ring, there will also be a very special necklace in the New Year.
