In April 2011, Adorn Insight flagged up a jewellery trend called, Bugs Galore. Two years down the line and it is great to see our predictions come true. The bee appears to be the popular choice within the plethora of insect jewels available to purchase with the likes of designers such as Theo Fennel and Delfina Delettrez devoting whole collections to the bee. Here are some of my top picks to launch us into a weekend!
