Sterling Silver Pendant - Medusa Large (30mm)
In Greek mythology, Medusa ("guardian, protectress") was a Gorgon, a chthonic female monster whose gaze turned onlookers into stone. She was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head as a weapon until giving it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield.
In recent times, Medusa has become symbolic of female rage and anger. She has also been admired for her strength and bravery. It makes a great gift for strong and independent women.
This oxidized sterling silver pendant features the head of Medusa. The generous-sized sterling silver ring attached to the top (loop approx. 5mm) allows this beautiful charm to be strung on almost any chain or cord of your choice.
Oxidized silver is produced naturally when oxygen reacts with silver. Precious sterling silver reacts to oxygen very easily, and and will have a darker appearance. Oxidized sterling silver jewelry has a nice contrast and vintage feel as the finish lacks shine and sparkle.
