| Merchant: Wolf & Badger In the Ancient Greek tale, after Zeus had defeated his father Cronos, he subdued the race of the giants, children of Gaia. In revenge, Gaia sent the monster Typhon to destroy the Olympian gods who transformed themselves into animals to hide. Aphrodite and her son Eros dived into the sea as twin fish which, in gratitude for borrowing their form, she later placed in the stars. The pendant is formed of a circle - considered to be the most geometrically perfect shape - holding an accurate cluster of the stars which form the constellation, held suspended in space by delicate wire. The chain is a rope chain, reminiscent of both the sailors who have used these stars to navigate through the centuries and our coiling strands of DNA. The Astrology Collection is inspired by the way our interwoven knowledge of science and mythology are inextricably linked to create our personal identities as our stories form our cultural DNA. Even solid gold can become tarnished over time, if this happens the most simple way to restore the necklace is to use Gold Dip, taking care to keep the clasp dry. A polishing cloth may be used on the pendant but is not recommended for the chain as fibres may become caught and pulling the chain repetitively may weaken it.
