The Gorgoneion "Medusa" adjustable amulet-bracelet is a very original jewel of minimalist design. The most common interpretation of Medusa suggests that she is an apotropaic symbol used to protect from the negative energy, much like the modern evil eye.Medusa is one of the more unusual divine figures of the ancient Greek mythology and one of the trio of Gorgon sisters, being the only one who was mortal. When she had an affair with the sea god Poseidon, goddess Athena punished her. She turned her into a hideous hag, making her hair into writhing snakes and her skin was turned a greenish hue. Her face, whether fierce and grotesque or feminine and composed, appears in virtually all media in varying contexts. Medusa had the ability to petrify anyone who looked at her. Last but not least, an image of Medusa's head was placed on Athena's own armor or shown on her shield, used as a talisman.
