This mythology jewelry wax seal necklace features a Leda and the Swan pendant with a scene depicting Zeus coming to Leda as a swan. The image has been made by using a very vintage Tassie intaglio pressed into a precious metal clay. The precious metal clay is then fired in the kiln and burns the binders from the clay leaving pure .999 silver.

After the piece comes out of the kiln, I polish and then oxidize the silver, then it is polished again to define the images. It is marked with my makers mark and .999FS, the fine silver mark on the back.
It measures just shy of an inch across and just shy of an inch from the top of the bail to the bottom.

The cord is leather with a sterling silver clasp--you choose the length.

Leda and the Swan is a motif from Greek mythology, in which Zeus came to Leda in the form of a swan. According to later Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, children of Zeus while at the same time bearing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of her husband Tyndareus, the King of Sparta. As the story goes, Zeus took the form of a swan and raped or seduced Leda on the same night she slept with her husband, King Tyndareus. In some versions, she laid two eggs from which the children hatched.

Fascinating Myth.
