What some of our team members are doing to help the bees!

OSSMedicineJewelry is making a documentary film on the vanishing of the bees.

She uses her creativity to help raise funds for creating her film!























She honors all creatures and makes jewelry out of bones, horns, fossils and stones.
All of her sales go toward the making of her film about the vanishing honeybees.

lepetitmonstre has created this Queen Bee print of an original Le Petit Monstre collage.




























All proceeds from this print will go to help fund the documentary,
The Vanishing of the Bees.
And if you love Queen Bee but the colors are not quite right, you can request any background color! How cool is that!?
