Delfina Delettrez is known for somewhat surrealist pieces but this necklace in a hive shape with an applied bee is not as conceptual as her typical work.
Seller Dover Street Market explains, “A study of nature, Delfina expands her bestiary collection with the “To Bee or not to be” creatures. The hyper-real beehive is rendered from gold and citrine to become a haven for her diamond and sapphire creatures to nest. In a game of two halves Delfina expands on her Garden of Delight creations. Offering a baroque dreamlike contrast to the linear modernity of the Twin earrings. Creating hypnagogic visions that celebrate the mysteries of the physical world these pieces mark a return to nature.”
