Lola Brooks 22k yellow gold & large Athena/Owl Ancient Greek Coin Pendant, 126-125 BC. The coin features the head of Athena Parthenos wearing a richly ornamented helmet on the obverse, and an owl standing on a prostrate amphora on the reverse, alongside magistrates names & an eagle, all within an olive wreath. It measures approximately 1 1/8″ in diameter, and it hangs from a 20 1/2″, 22k yellow gold handmade chain.
Lola Brooks has always been captivated by the Victorian-era concept of jewelry as a form of communication, and the role of personal adornment in cultural identity. Nowhere is that more evident than her own informal-yet-elegant large-scale designs that lend themselves to self-expression.
