Artemis Necklace w Garnet and 18K Gold
A lyrical ode to the Huntress, the great Artemis, whose arrows always meet their marks. In these times, it is wise to keep one's own arrow handy.
Sterling silver lavalliere-style necklace, hand-forged and cut, set with blood-red garnets. The openwork at the back features a snake, the serpent energy of the land. The arrow head can function as a repository for a slip of parchment, or a fragment of silk scented with a favourite perfume.

Dimensions: Chain 21" can be shortened or lengthened with chain by request
Pendant: 170mm x 29mm (6 5/8" x 1 1/8")
"I sing of Artemis, whose shafts are of gold,
who cheers on the hounds,
the pure maiden, shooter of stags,
who delights in archery, own sister to Apollo with the golden sword.
Over the shadowy hills and windy peaks she draws her golden bow,
rejoicing in the chase, and sends out grievous shafts.
The tops of the high mountains tremble and the tangled wood echoes awesomely with the outcry of beasts: earthquakes and the sea also where fishes shoal.
But the goddess with a bold heart turns every way destroying the race of wild beasts: and when she is satisfied and has cheered her heart, this huntress who delights in arrows slackens her supple bow and goes to the great house of her dear brother Phoebus Apollo, to the rich land of Delphi, there to order the lovely dance of the Muses and Graces.
There she hangs up her curved bow and her arrows, and heads and leads the dances, gracefully arrayed, while all they utter their heavenly voice, singing how neat-ankled Leto bare children supreme among the immortals both in thought and in deed. Hail to you, children of Zeus and rich-haired Leto! "
