This pendant has been made by using the ancient Lost Wax Technique, one of the oldest techniques of silversmithing and it’s 925 solid sterling silver with a sterling silver chain.
Athena was the goddess of wisdom and warfare and the owl was her patron animal. Her owl represented the wisdom and the importance of knowledge and learning, as well as pride, that was very important for the Greeks.
