Not only are bumblebees cute, they are also ancient symbols with many positive meanings.
Always buzzing around, hard at work collecting nectar and pollen from flowers, they are symbols of productivity and a strong work ethic, but also of knowing when to stop and smell the flowers.
Bees help us remember to strive for a balance between work and play.
The bumblebee is also a symbol of moving past your limitations. Aerodynamically speaking, bumblebees shouldn't be able to fly - they have fat, round bodies with small, delicate wings. And yet, they do fly.
It's not likely that the bumblebee knows it shouldn't be able to fly - it just DOES and so can you.
Bees are also a symbol of community and of giving back. Bees live and work collectively, gathering pollen and nectar that feeds everyone in the colony, all the while pollinating plants and giving back to the greater world.
These bumblebee earrings emphasize the bee's small wings that somehow miraculously allow it to fly. Both the front and backsides of the wings are decorated with a lacy pattern of veins.
