Product Description

The Athena Necklace

wisdom, justice, the arts

Handmade from sterling silver and 18k gold, the Athena necklace shows the goddess with her golden owl companion on her shoulder.  Her face is carved from a recycled piano key, and her features delicately scrimshawed by hand. The necklace is reversible - showing the stone on the back - and beaded with natural turquoise.  Athena is the Grecian goddess of knowledge, justice, and the arts, and reminds us of the inner intuition and wisdom we possess when we take the time to listen.  She measures 1.25" x 1.4".

Each goddess necklace is signed on the bottom by the artist, with an easy-to-use sterling silver and gemstone box clasp.  The standard beading length is 19" but can be strung to any length. 

Warranty Information

Athena is perhaps the most powerful and recognized woman from Grecian mythology. The favorite child of Zeus, she sprung fully grown from her father’s head, already wearing her robe and helmet. In an age where women were expected to be both demure and docile, Athena’s fiery nature and interest in intellect defied convention, making her a truly powerful figure in mythology for women.

Athena became the beloved patroness of Athens (hence the name) when she offered the city the first domesticated olive tree, providing them with food, oil, and shelter. She was also a staunch supporter of the arts - being a renown weaver herself - and often counseled mortals who had won her favor, using her gifts of intelligence, strategy, and cunning to avoid actual warfare.

Shown here, the goddess Athena gazes sagely at the world, resting from her many pursuits to meditate. Her owl companion sits on her shoulder, representing wisdom and inner knowledge.
