9. "La Abeja"
"My entry for the Art of Patrón contest was inspired by the flavor of the tequila and the spirit of the people behind it. I melted and sculpted a Patrón Silver Tequila bottle into 60 beads to represent the 60 hands it takes to make each bottle. I also melted and sculpted the bee bottle, which contains Patrón Silver tequila. I handcrafted a sheet of solid silver to create the wings, choosing to use silver in honor of Patrón Silver. The bottle stopper is carved out of a Patrón Silver bottle cork."
