A Ring with Six Bees

This ring is an experiment at combining wax impressions into a carving. First I carved a bee seal and took six impressions. Then I cut a ring out of wax with six matched gaps, and fused the bees into place. It produces a very comfortable and quite striking ring. It’s a large size, intended as a man’s ring.
