Winged Lion is an Etsy shop designer that honors endangered bees, the importance the species has in our ecosystems and beekeeping with honeycomb designs transformed into luxe wearable pieces. The collection utilizes the popular hexagonal shape to create pendants, rings and necklaces that are designed to replicate the aesthetic of honey.

Bees play an important role in sustaining the natural environment through pollenating and creating honey, and Lion honors the tiny insects with these detailed gemstone wearables. The jewelry utilizes yellow quartz rocks that mimic the look and clarity of honey while precious metals such as gold and silver are used to create hexagonal honeycombs. Several of the pieces also include metallic bee embellishments that are life-sized and incredibly detailed.
