Last June, New York-based Gumuchian jewelry debuted its Gumuchian “B” Collection, a line of bee-themed jewelry in 18k gold and diamonds. The company declared that proceeds from the collection would go to HoneyLove, a nonprofit which champions urban beekeeping and home gardens, and other efforts to save the threatened honey bee.
Less than a year later, Gumuchian has announced that donations have sponsored a successful urban beekeeper symposium and workshop conducted by LA-based HoneyLove.org on Sunday, March 29, at the Grow Native nursery in Los Angeles, California.
Congratulations to all our friends at Gumuchian!

CEO of HoneyLove Chelsea McFarland stated that the workshop taught attendees how to set up a “swarm box” on their property in order to help save the feral bee population. “The workshop was open to the public (of all ages), had great attendance, and inspired a new group of beekeepers!” she said.
Myriam Gumuchian, vice president and director of sales for the jewelry company, announced that it will continue the Gumuchian “B” Collection partnership with HoneyLove through 2015. “It was wonderful seeing exactly how the donations were being used and even better knowing that we’re a part of something so important and vital to our livelihood,” she said.
