Taste the sweeter side of the bee jewellery trend with these honeycomb delights

As an avowed apiary enthusiast (translation: bee lover), you can imagine my delight when I happened upon these honeycomb patterned tights in Morley’s – Brixton’s answer to Selfridges – last week. Reduced from £15 to £5 and designed by knitwear know-it-all Mark Fast, I snapped them right up.

Now, I’ve been harping on about bees for literally years. And it would be hard not to notice the proliferation of all things bee on the high street (with the Alex Monroe bee pendant holding the most-coveted title) but did you know there is some equally covetable honeycomb jewellery around? Inspired by my Mark Fast tights I discovered some lovely pieces based on those hexagonal cells where bees store honey (and grow their babies), and on the whole they’re more delicate than a lot of bee jewellery. So here they are, a handful of honeycomb jewellery gems.

Eclectic Eccentricity ‘I’ll Have A Bee Please Bob’ Honeycomb Necklace, £19, NotontheHighStreet.com.

Thanks to it’s cute design and an awesome double-pun, this necklace really is a blockbuster. Geddit?!

Lulu May ‘All Hexed Out’ Necklace, £25.68, Etsy.com.

I’m not sure if this is meant to represent honeycomb but the resemblance is there and I like the varying sizes of the interlocking hexagons.

French Connection Honeycomb Necklace, £35, FrenchConnection.com.

I think this is how cyber bees from the future will build their hives, all silver and minimalist.

Nancy Rose Gold Honeycomb Necklace, £60, NancyRose.co.uk.

Nancy Rose makes all kinds of honeycomb pendants, rings and earrings, some of them inset with pearls and beads, but this plain gold necklace is my favourite.

Bill Skinner Bee & Honeycomb Ring, £60, BillSkinnerStudio.co.uk.

OK, so this doesn’t really conform to the ‘sweeter side’ epithet, being a big chunky loop of gold honeycomb with a bee sitting on top, but isn’t it just gorge? Bill Skinner does a very similar bangle and a bee pendant too.
