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 stamped bronze charm. I carved my own stamp.
Coin slightly curved.
The earrings are about 1" long.
14k gold filled ear wire. Gold filled has 100 times more gold than plated so does not rub or peel off.
