Gorgoneion Protection Pendant

£98.00

In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion 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. 

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.

C A R E : To keep your jewellery in optimum condition remove when interacting with harsh chemicals and detergents. When you are not wearing your jewellery store in a box/soft cloth bag.

For silver you can make a paste of baking soda and water and gently buff with a cloth or tooth brush. You can also use white toothpaste. Or boil with baking soda and 1 teaspoon of salt for just a few minutes and polish with soft cloth.

For gold use a little white toothpaste and polish with soft cloth.

For gold brass—believe it or not—tomato sauce works well if you rinse with water after. It is useful to use clear nail polish on the inside of your jewellery to prevent it from tarnishing (never fall victim to the clammy hand).

You can make a lemon and baking soda solution. Vinegar and salt with a soft cloth works well. Make sure to rub with olive oil after to prevent it from tarnishing!
