Adornments like octopus medallions were worn by sailors to ward off evil.
Seamen understood the eerie magic of the octopus. It’s black ink-jet expulsions and other-worldly appearance struck awe (and terror) in the observer. Hence, it makes an incredibly powerful totem, carrying great status – a symbol of protection and good luck.
Hand carved solid yellow bronze bracelet.
The charm is about 3/4" wide.
14k gold filled chain. Gold filled has 100 times more gold than plated thus does not rub or peel off.
