This gritty braided necklace with an ancient cameo was born from a direct collaboration with an horse groomer that used to braid horses manes and tails. I brought silver threads and leather to the stables and we started to weave them, in the same way we did with the braids. The result is this necklace, soft if worn, strong in look, that houses a beautiful cameo with Athena. Superb and brave she is the Greek goddess of war and handicraft: her resilient, fighting spirit with gentle heart is still hosted in this bold jewel, one-of-a-kind piece totally designed and handcrafted in Italy
