Designer Tips

  • Patina the bee and darken the frame with Win-Ox™.
  • Apply wax to seal the pieces, after you have achieved desired patina effect.
  • Attach the bee and filigree using jump rings. Adding these pieces is an easy way to customize your piece without soldering.
  • The finished length is 16".
