In ancient Greek mythology, bees stood as a sort of symbol of the chthonic Gods–deities in, of, and beneath the earth. It was known that “Melissa” was used as the title of a priestess, this priestess invariably serves a Goddess, and one of the Great-Mothers–Gaia, Cybele, Rhea, or Demeter and Persephone. This is known to have meant that at some level, the bee stood as a sort of liminal figure between these Goddesses and man. They could bring us the undistilled sweetness of the divine, and they could carry worldly cares back into the earth and deliver them to the deities. Call on the divine with our beautiful pearl necklace with the perfect bee pendant in the center.
