Our Empress Bee is inspired by a Napoleonic era bee shoe ornament. I can just see Napoleon presenting Josephine, his Empress, with a pair of gold and diamond encrusted bees. Furthermore, besides the romance and symbolism of bees, I am captivated & stand in awe of the majestic bumble bee. Honey is the only natural food made without destroying any form of life. Honey is also the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted by archaeologists and found edible. After his death, Alexander the Great's remains were preserved in a huge crock of honey. You are as sweet & beautiful as any flower, doesn’t your nectar deserve to be harvested by some Knight&Hammer Empress Bees?
