While normally a hobby artist focused on creating fine jewelry featuring real flowers and some small bugs (recovered after they passed) immortalized as wearable art, Ink&Bee also is very interested in moonlighting with her true colours - the bright shine of a big ol' nerd. Featuring items made with resin or hand-carved stamps, there's a bit of something for everyone from the quiet druid looking to spruce up their floral jewelry, to the DM who needs an actual sword-shaped dice box for their most recent impulse buy, to the fellow Final Fantasy nerds who are also obsessed with the Critically Acclaimed MMO (TM): Final Fantasy XIV (free trial up to level 60!) ((Please note Ink&Bee is not endorsed or supported by Square-Enix)).
