an interesting proposal.....

one day a fellow artist in our building walked in with a pair of sandals with these little metal bees on them.  the sandals were much loved and worn out, but my friend wanted to keep the bees and was curious if i could design a piece of jewelry around them.  her first thought was just to put them on tie tack posts, and use them as scatter pins, but i proposed a copper leaf pin for the bumblers to sit on. i could bore tiny holes in the leaf so that the bees could be attached with the tie tac pins and worn as a broach with the leaf, or singly as scatter pins.  what do you think?
