Discovered at Chryssolakkos, the burial ground outside the palace of Malia on the island of Crete. The original pendant (in gold) represents two bees, (wasps or hornets), with wings raised, holding a honeycomb of fine granulated gold between their legs, sipping from a drop of honey or nectar. The pendant is thought to date to ca.1800 BC and is in the Herakleion Museum, Crete.
Handmade for us in Greece, this jewellery collection is inspired by ancient Greek coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic motifs and images, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture.
These earrings are made of sterling silver, hallmarked '925'.
