Another of the beautiful vintage fob ink tins - my favourite.  And inside this tiny, weeny bee made using wool, embroidery thread, vintage Kamibari gold thread and beads.  Sphecodes scabricollis is a rare species of southern Britain, usually in sandy and dry clay habitats, including woodland rides, heathland and coastal dunes.
