Made for the "Corno Project", see:


and the group "Global Jewellery Challenge":

The "corno" (or horn) is a classical amulet of Naples, Italy. It is against bad luck, evil eye. Traditionally it's a little red horn, often with a crown on top. For more information on corno, please see:

Made of roe horn, silver, brass bolt, steel chain. The little head attached above the corno represents the "gobbo" (hunchback), a good luck figure that often appears together with the corno. The gobbo is made by lost wax process, sculptured from soft bees wax, then casted in silver. The head also looks a bit like Pulcinella, an other figure originated from Naples.

The piece is meant to be worn in the pocket, like a watch, attached to the belt holder with the chain. Or, alternatively on the neck as a chain.
