According to Greek mythology, Medusa was once a beautiful and irresistible mortal. However, her beauty captivated Poseidon and the myth describes him attacking Medusa and violating her trust. Enraged with jealousy, Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair into serpents and declared that anyone who locked eyes with her, would turn to stone. Perseus was sent to slay and behead Medusa to end her life, and upon her death, Pegasus emerged from her body. To this day, Medusa's powerful spirit still lives on in the stories passed down from generation to generation. My intention for this pendant is to symbolize
Snakes have always played a fundamental role in mythology and literature. Throughout time, these mystical creatures have come to symbolize fertility, creative life force, rebirth, transformation, and healing. Those that wear the Medusas say that they can feel the energy they hold and that they feel more powerful when they put them on! I created this design to ignite that fierce and unstoppable fire inside of us.
