Cleopatras Bling | Gorgoneion Protection Gold Pendant

Olivia sources ancient and rare coins from the back streets of the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, Turkey. She re-creates designs with them to make modern-day, wearable art. In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion (Greek: Γοργόνειον) was a special apotropaic amulet showing the Gorgon head, used most famously by the Olympian deities Athena and Zeus: both are said to have worn the gorgoneion as a protective pendant. 

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe gives its beauty.  Vermeil: 3 microns of 24K gold over silver. Nickel and lead free.  Size of pendant 1.2cm x 1.2cm.
