Gorgoneion Protection Pendant

The Gorgoneion Protection Pendant, by Australian jewellery brand Cleopatra's Bling.

Founded by Olivia Cummings, Cleopatra's Bling is the result of a life long love of travels and trinkets. With her time split between Melbourne, Paris and Istanbul - Olivia treasure hunts in the Istanbul Grand Bazaar for pieces that she hand-carves and reworks into new designs, with a hint of nostalgia.

About Gorgoneion: In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion (Greek: Γοργόνειον) 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.

Handcrafted and individually cast, each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty.
