Hades was the god of the dead and King of the underworld. He was often portrayed with his three-headed guard dog, Cerberus. Although his role was to maintain relative balance, he was depicted as cold and stern. He ruthlessly applied the rules of his kingdom to all without discrimination.
Hades, was a fearsome figure, Greeks refrained from giving him much thought to avoid attracting his attention.
Since precious minerals come from under the earth (i.e. the underworld ruled by Hades), he was considered to have control of these gems as well.
This piece is 100% handmade from plate. Sections are laser cut and soldered together to make its hollowed, three-dimensional form.
Brass substrate is electroplated with black sterling (made by oxidating sterling silver). The product is then dipped into acid to create the subtly destroyed effect.
No two products will be the same. These nuances should be seen as a characteristic of the product.
