Greek Bee Fibula, 4th century BC
The bee, found in the artifacts of Ancient Near East and Aegean cultures, was believed to be the sacred insect that bridged the natural world to the underworld.
Potnia, the Minoan-Mycenaean “mistress” goddess,  was referred to as “The Pure Mother Bee”. Her priestesses received the name of “Melissa” (“bee”). It is interesting to note that Mycenaean tholos tombs were shaped like beehives.
In another myth, the Homeric Hymn to Apollo acknowledges that Apollo’s gift of prophecy first came to him from three bee maidens, usually identified with the Thriae. The Thriae was a trinity of pre-Hellenic Aegean bee goddesses.

Hiss is a snake bracelet from the 1st century A.D.

Designed to look like a coil around the wearer, this would have been worn in a pair on the wrist or upper arm. A tinier head appears coming from the snake’s tail. Look closely.

Snake Bracelet, A.D. 1 - 100, Romano-Egyptian. J. Paul Getty Museum.

~~~(Concept: wearable performance art)::::

Hand embroidered white jumper with black string depicting the concept of a performative and externalised state of being apologetic. Instead of repressing or harbouring feelings of guilt, desire, perversion, etc, the wearer can publicly display their affective state and past events which may hold conflict or trigger tension. Furthermore, historical artefacts which are both intimate and personal are made even more vulnerable by this act of wearing it as an everyday and integrated piece of clothing, challenging the notion of a sacred and internalised state of suffering and remorse. The anecdotal and narrative nature of the sentences also serves to conjure a more personalised and relatable form by evoking a standard post-pubescent mood. Ultimately the wearer can confront and be confronted by their own clothing.
