Worshipped in ancient Greece as the ultimate goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite was more than just a pretty face. She was a fierce feminine archetype secure in her own agency, and confident in the knowledge that she was beautiful, powerful, and completely worthy of the love and adoration she received. As the personification of feminine power, no one had to convince Aphrodite of her worthiness–she was born knowing it.
Aphrodite’s archetype teaches us that we were all born beautiful and worthy of love. This piece was created to remind its wearer that you don’t have to look a certain way, especially to meet our society’s ridiculously unattainable standard of physical beauty. You don’t have to do anything or be anything other than authentic—the singularly original you. Love & worthiness is your birthright as a human.♥ Aphrodite is fabricated using recycled copper and sterling silver, and measures 1″ wide x 3″ drop.
