The queen bee necklace is based on an ancient Greek coin from Ephesus, Ionia from 300BC. The honey bee was a powerful symbol in ancient Greece, and a very important to Ephesus. She was associated with Artemis, the Greek goddess of hunting, wild nature and protector of women.
The bee is also a symbol of rebirth, good luck and prosperity since ancient times. In Celtic myths, bees were regarded as beings of great wisdom and also as spirit messengers between worlds. Their honey was treated as a magical substance and used in many rituals. When made into mead it was considered to have prophetic powers and was called 'the nectar of the gods'. The bee is said to represent healing through the properties of honey.
This little bee coin necklace is imbued with so much protection and positivity. Wear to feel grounded and powerful.
