Making a Honey Comb Bracelet

My friend Kate who is a bee keeper gave me some honey comb to experiment with for jewelry making.
I played around with is all weekend trying to figure out how to cut, mold and piece it together.  The honey comb was very brittle and squishable at the same time which was a bit of a challenge to work with.  But, it was a lot of fun to play around while enjoying the honey smell.  I ended up molding the comb into a bracelet and adding lots of casting wax to it.  The result was a very cool looking organic shape.  I am looking forward to seeing how the casting will turn out.  


  1. I cannot wait to see how it turns out!!!

  2. Me too! Everything always looks so different in the metal form.
