Nichole McIver finds big inspiration in the tiniest creatures. Take a closer look at the bumblebee, and you might start to see it as not simply busy and industrious, but selfless. Every handmade necklace is as unique as the person wearing it, whether they’re adventurous and positive like a dragonfly, or lighthearted and curious like a ladybug. Meditating on each insect’s special qualities, Nichole carefully adorns sterling silver pieces with hand-cut 24k gold accents. The gold is hand cut and placed before bonding to the silver, so it won’t fade the way gold-plated jewelry does. Variations may occur. Handmade in Minnesota.
