Calliope Muse of Poetry Necklace
Calliope (kal·EYE·uh·pee) is the ancient muse of epic poetry and eloquence, historically invoked by illustrious writers like Homer and Dante. Calliope brings comfort to those seeking a steady voice in a crowded room, bestowing eloquence like honey upon the lips of the wearer. She brings divine inspiration, truth, and grace to writers, poets and all those who need a steady hand to guide their pen.
As the muse of the written word, Calliope is most often pictured with her stylus, a paper scroll or a book. This handcrafted pendant depicts Calliope in an original etching from 1832, accompanied by her book and lyre.
The trademark Common Era raised molten rim frames the pendant, suspended from a finely-woven Italian-made spiga chain.
