The BONNIE BEES FUNDRAISER FOR WISH DROP-IN SOCIETY
Created in honour of and inspired by Dr. Bonnie Henry, British Columbia’s Chief Medical Officer, who has gracefully and cautiously led us through the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last month, I reached out to Dr. Henry as a longtime client and expressed a desire to create a piece of tribute jewelry with proceeds going to a local charity. Together we chose the WISH Drop-in Centre Society to provide relief to vulnerable women in this challenging time, especially those living and working in the Downtown Eastside.
Every Bonnie Bee purchased will help provide food, essential supplies such as clothing and toiletries, access to sanitation such as showers and toilets, educational programs , and essential support.
The bee symbolizes life, community and personal power. My hope is people will wear this bee in solidarity with one another as a representation of kindness and compassion for their neighbour and community.
As Dr. Bonnie Henry says… Bee calm, Bee kind, Bee safe!
Thank you all ever so much for supporting this Bee-utiful little love project!

Select from two different designs!
Bonnie Bee’s wings are truly enchanting. An internal climbing vine filigree pattern laces throughout. This lovely bee is anatomically correct with a beautifully carved underbelly and six legs. She looks like she’s ready to take flight!
Bonnie Bee comes with your choice of gemstone eyes (pink sapphire, emerald, diamond or blue sapphire) and in your choice of white, yellow or rose gold. For you silver lovers I am offering a limited number of bees in sterling silver! Her wingspan is approximately 1 inch across.
This baby bee may be tiny in size, however she is a fierce and mighty pollinator!
Her wings are highly detailed as well as her anatomically correct body. The angle of her wings make her look like she’s about to wrap a flower in her motherly embrace.
She is available in your choice of gold colour, as well as a limited run of silver designs. Her wingspan is .75 inches.
