Atalanta Inspired Necklace
"I am not to be won till I be conquered first in speed. Wife and couch shall be given as prize unto the swift, but death shall be the reward of those who lag behind."
Atalanta to the suitors. Ovid, Metamorphoses 10.570
This vintage-inspired cuban style necklace finds its inspiration in the character of Atalanta, a mythological heroine who grew up in the wilderness after being abandoned by her father for being a girl. Little did he know she would become a fierce warrior known for her excellent hunting skills, her strength and courage. This bad-ass young woman valued her independence so much that she swore she would only marry the man who would beat her in a footrace, yet any many who would fail in his attempt would die.
