Joan Rivers Sunflower Bee Pin
Sunflower Bee Nice Not Fab
I have approx 10 Joan Rivers Bees. I love both Joan and her Bees. I mourn her, miss her and love her. That said, I do not want my personal feelings to get in the way of truth when it comes to this bee pin. When viewed online it looks bright, vibrant and sunny. You can definitely see the enamel work. When in person, it is much more muted. Honestly it looks like a gold tone polka dotted bee....not a sunflower bee. It is cute, and the quality is not lacking, but it is not my favorite. I am keeping it...I do love sunflowers, and I am thrilled to own a bee with an interesting background story (Joan designed the sunflower bee after watching the 1956 film Lust for Life about Vincent Van Gogh) I am writing this review for the casual collector who might be having a hard time trying to decide between the sunflower bee and another bee. While it is pretty, there are some amazingly more whimsical bees by Joan that are spot on. If your looking for a summertime Bee pin consider perhaps the Watermelon Bee, or the Wildflower Bee....both are stunning!

Got my bee pin! It is cute and adorable! Just as shown on air! Takes some effort to unhook but is precious. My only critique is that the bee does look small in real.

Beautiful piece to own! colors are vivid yellow and bright - sure to make someone smile! lover of sunflowers this is definitely for you. Another added to the collection! perfect gift for anyone that loves sunflowers and bumble bees.
my favorite flower
I purchased this pin because Sun floweres are one of my favorite flowers & in honor of Joan Rivers. I purchased this on the day of her passing because she was and still is an inspiration to all women. She lived her life to the fullest and is a reminder that we are never to old to do the things we love or want to try something new.

This was my first bee pin, because I love sunflowers! Gorgeous!
I like the entire concept of the bee achieving the impossible. I love sunflowers. This pin is gorgeous!
EXACTLY AS PICTURED
I had ordered a denim one for my mom years ago and saw this one with my favorite flowers.
Pin is super sweet!!!
I bought this in honor of Joan Rivers.
My Mama and I use to watch her together (ever since she began with QVC). My Mama owned many of her Bee pins and SO MUCH MORE jewelry. I just felt like after her death I needed to pay tribute to her.And this little adorable Sunflower Bee pin is the perfect way to say Thank-you Joan.God Bless.♡
I love Joan !
The pin is beautiful. I ordered it a few days after her death.I have always loved Joan' s bee pins. First one by the way I have ordered! Like I said in my sympathy message to Melissa and Cooper, our only daughter is getting married 1 month from today. Her theme is sunflowers and turquoise! I can hear Joan know being excited. My mom died 15 months ago of ALS and keepsakes are important. I have always loved Joan for her humor and true love for people so I needed a keepsake. This pin was meant to Bee!!
This bee just arrived and it's perfectly gorgeous. I will wear it and think of Joan. Love the sunflowers.....makes me think of Tuscany, Italy. It's a bit bigger than my other bees but it's a winner.
A Very Special Piece of Jewerly
I am so happy I took a chance and bought this pin. I was a little scared after reading some of the reviews, but I absolutely love it. I ordered this on the day that Joan passed away as a tribute to her. I plan on giving this to my daughter in-law as she is a big Georgia Tech fan, and her favorite flower is sunflowers. I not only plan on giving this pin to her, but I am also going to share with her the story behind why Joan always loved her Bee pins and the sufficient behind over coming obstacles when all the odds are against you.
Thank you Joan for sharing your life, encouraging words and beautiful jewelry.
Certainly NOT as pictured
I was so disappointed when I received this bee pin. It is quite dull with the yellow enamel being the same color as the gold metal. You really cannot see the sunflower unless you look at it close-up. I have so many of Joan's pieces of which I love, but this is certainly not her best.
