The Kokeshi page has been updated to include #36-38 The Bee Family. Honey (top), Worker (bottom), and Baby (below) were made for the March 2010 Super7 Florida show. Baby Bee is currently available for adoption in my Etsy shop; Worker and Honey have been adopted.
The Bee Family was actually the first kokeshi family that I started for the show, but I was really disappointed how the first few came out and ended up starting over. I’ve always had a particular love of bees (my nickname is Bee) and I love the strong contrast between the black and yellow. This set also features my very first tiny kokeshi (Baby Bee); the Lunar New Year Kokeshi premiered first but Baby was finished before them.
