This unique sterling silver pendant features the traditional Minoan Swirl Motif, with a hammered or punched silver texture, which creates interesting detail. On the reverse side the pendant has a finer "punched silver" texture. As the design takes form, none of the edges are touching, including the ends. The spiral design ends at the top of the pendant, as it branches out into a delicate tail. The generous-sized sterling silver ring attached to the back (loop approx. 4mm) allows this beautiful charm to be strung on almost any chain or cord of your choice.
Please note: European jewelry orders typically ship directly from Greece to avoid tax and custom duties.

The swirl motif is inspired by the Ancient Greek mythological Labyrinth, which was an elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, a creature that was half man and half bull and was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus. Daedalus had made the Labyrinth so cunningly that he himself could barely escape it after he built it. Theseus was aided by Ariadne, who provided him with a skein of thread, literally the "clew", or "clue", so he could find his way out again.
