The grave of Childeric was discovered by chance in 1653 in Tournai, close to the Church of Saint-Brice, Tournai, Belgium.
The burial was extremely rich and contained jewellery, two swords, a battle axe and a spear, gold and silver coins, buckles, a crystal ball, horse-harness and a hundred gold bees.
A HUNDRED GOLD BEES!
This started out as a design for a textiles project that I probably wont get round to now.

Ok, might as well stop making jewellery now..
(I won’t though)
