Honey bee and stag coin in 14k gold on 18” chain by artist Kathryn Bentley. Molded from an ancient Greek coin. One side depicts abee, the symbol of the goddess Artemis. The reverse shows the stag – an animal sacred to Artemis – symbolizing the goddess' role as protector of animals, wildlife and the natural world.
Based in Los Angeles, Kathryn Bentley's aesthetic arises out of changing obsessions and visual research. Inspiration comes to Kathryn from past design movements, travel, artisans, flea markets, architecture and textiles.
