Here’s MancBee, a re-imagined version of our much-loved Manchester bee. Designed by me, a Mancunian jeweller, and crafted in my own local workshop, the lovely silver and brass jewels come straight out of Crumpsall. The Manchester Bee has always been 2D flat. But I’m all about 3D design, and I wanted to give it a third dimension. The 3D curves I made for the bee are alive. It’s a sexy little insect, now.

MancBee is made from 5 grams of sterling silver or 4 grams of golden, buttery brass, 30mm x 25mm. With its secure pin and clasp at the back,the pin version can be worn as a badge, lapel pin, brooch or any way you like – maybe a piercing! The pendant version can be bought with a quality silver or brass chain to suit. You can also buy the pendant version without the chain. A wide loop at the back of the bee will work with a thong instead of the chain if you choose to wear it boho-style. MancBee is affordable glam to suit work clothes, street clothes or even your wedding outfit.

When you buy a MancBee, you have the opportunity to donate to Manchester charities, and when you do, the MancBee project will MATCH your donation, so your gift is doubled up. Go to the DONATION DOUBLER page when you’ve ordered your MancBee and fire-up the donation doubler!
