    How We Price Our Ethical Jewelry

    It would cost us way less to go to China and have our pieces made in a sweatshop. Ethical manufacturing costs more because the studio takes care of their workers and offers healthcare, paid time off and state-of-the-art equipment.

    Athena: The Unrivaled

    Athena is the goddess of war, but leaving it at that would be doing her a great disservice. A patron of heroes, bright-eyed Athena is known for her wisdom, her crafts, and her strategic prowess.

    Gaia: The Beginning

    First, there was void, whose name is Chaos. Then sprung Gaia, verdant and lush, like pea shoots through snow. Gaia is the Earth personified, her name evokes images of magnificent carved canyons and meadows of tall grass. Mother of the sea, wife of the sky, born with the abyss.

    Persephone: The Wanderer

    Persephone is not powerless. She never was. In the sparkling pomegranate seeds that tied her forever to the Underworld, we find the quiet strength of a capable woman who was a pawn, but became a queen, and the ever-changing nature of the goddess who decided for herself what she wanted to be.
