The goddess of love, Astarte, is revered at Erice. It was there that Daedalus was tasked to make a golden honeycomb for her. Honeycomb - and therefore, bees - are inextricably linked with Sicily, so I named this collection 'Melissea', meaning 'bee', Di Erice. In the hexagons of the honeycomb on the rings and pendants, a small bee and diamond are hidden.
