The Olympic deities Athena and Zeus are both said to have used the image of the gorgoneion as an amulet of protection. Their use of magic against evil is a practise carrying across the centuries. As such, the wearing of the Gorgon’s image emphasises the divine aspects within all of us. It’s fearsome yet beautiful face represents what has been called a dynamic life energy, the tug of wild spirits that calls to all of us. Affixed to small hoops, the Gorgoneion Earrings speak to unchecked hearts and minds.
Each piece is hand carved by Olivia Cummings. She creates jewellery with emotional and historical relevance, dipping into the collective memory, all while respecting ancient jewellery-making traditions.
