And what about a home for them to live in when they go off into the world to have adventures of their own.  Each Bee earring comes in a box that is made right here in our shop in Santa Barbara. 

 

A custom made box that keeps the Bee earrings safe no matter where you go ; from the gym to the office or that around the world trip you have been planning for years.

The AHA would like me to mention that no bees were harmed in the filming of this blog and any dangerous stunts were performed by professionally trained stunt bees .
