Athena is the Greek goddess of war (also known for her wisdom) and is the city protectress of Athens. She is customarily portrayed wearing body armour, a helmet and carrying a shield and lance, so when I saw these vintage glass intaglios I thought of her.

These vintage stones were made in Germany and are hematite and silver toned. I have mounted them onto lace edged silver-plated settings.  A matched bracelet is available.

These earrings are:

  • ethically and sustainably made
  • limited edition
  • made with glass stones made in Germany circa 1980-90s
  • 18 mm in diameter with a 4cm drop from the top of the hook
  • suspended from sterling silver hooks

These earrings have been made in my Melbourne workshop with vintage materials which may hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
