Queen Bee Enamel Pin

9 USD / In stock.
This Queen Bee pin was introduced as a stretch goal in the "Bee Yourself" fundraiser to help pollinators! The goal was reached and this pin is now available, too. Thank you!

There aren't really any pink bees in the world, but the body shape and design is based on carpenter bees of the Xylocopa genus. They are pollinators and typically nest in dead wood or plant material.

In the United States, seven bee species were declared endangered in 2016, and together, we helped with sales of this pin! During its charity period, this pin and "Bee Yourself" together raised over $330 for the Pollinator Partnership, an organization dedicated to raising awareness, promoting conservation, and supporting research to understand and help pollinators.

Soft enamel pin with gold plating and rubber clutch. Approximately 30 mm.
