Melissa Earrings - 'Hesperides' Collection

 

This Ancient Greek bee, is a design discovered in the Minoan palace. The two "in love" bees in an opposite position hold a disc, possibly a honeycomb, between their legs. On their heads a gold-wraparound case encircles a small sphere, maybe a honey drop, while small wings hang on their wings.

 

According to the Myth, Hesperides were the nymphs of evening and golden light of sunset.Hesiod places the number of Hesperides at three, and their names as: Aigle ("dazzling light”) , Erytheia and Hesperethusa ("sunset glow”) referring to the colour of the setting sun: red, yellow, or gold.
