The Minoan Bee is considered a symbol of wisdom and nobility. Inspired by an original gold pendant found in Malia, Crete, which is believed to have been presented as a bridal gift to a Minoan princess. It is an image of two bees facing eachother, storing drops of honey in a honey comb. A stunningly symmetrical design!
