An Aegis, or a shield, was carried by the goddess Athena in battle as protection. An Aegis contains protection from a powerful, knowledgable and benevolent force. In Norse mythology, an Aegis - or Tarnkappe - has the power to make the user invisible.
The Aegis necklace is made from handwoven and hand dyed hemp. There are five sterling silver shapes woven into the fabric of the necklace. It is dip-dyed in a mixture of cochineal/madder root and logwood.
