The goddess Athena has always been my favorite as she was a warrior and the goddess of wisdom. She aided heroes in their quests and was the patron of the city of Athens. In other words, original badas*.
This necklace features the visage of the Goddess of wisdom created in pure silver strung on a sterling silver chain that closes with a spring ring clasp.
Please choose the length of your chain and whether you would like your chain shiny or oxidized (darkened).
Process - The medium I use to create this charm is known as Metal Clay and it consists of recycled silver from photo negatives mixed in an organic binder. In this case I used a wax stamp to make an impression on the clay, then I fire in a kiln where the binder burns away and the piece that remains is .999 pure silver. I then oxidize (darken) it in order to bring out the texture, and polish the high points to create a nice contrast.
The item pictured is not the exact piece you will receive as I make these to order. Since they are special orders made especially for you, they will take roughly a week to ship.
Your purchase will arrive in a 100% recycled box w/ poly-fill wadding, ready to give as a gift for others or yourself ;-)
