Greek goddess gold owl brass earrings. Bright-eyed Athena.

'Glaukopis' Athena means bright-eyed Athena. Goddess of wisdom - and her symbol is the owl. I was reading the part in Odyssey where she reveals herself to Odysseus in Ithaca and I was struck by the use of this adjective, 'bright-eyed', exactly like the gleaming eyes of an owl in the dark. I couldn't resist making these.

You can find them here.
