Brown Pendant necklace ‘Acheron’.
Pendant necklace ‘Acheron’ in the color of the Earth. The base of the glass element is made from a transparent ouzo bottle and the frits are made from a brown Beer bottle. It is hanged in a bronze ‘snake’ chain with gold details and an extension chain. The pendant necklace ‘Acheron’ named after from the river Acheron due to its rectangular shape that refers to the shape of a river. The Acheron River is located in Epirus and its name comes from a Greek word ‘achos’, which describes deep sorrow, sadness and grief. In ancient times, its name was described as the road to the underworld. According to ancient Greek mythology the god Hermes handed over the souls of the dead to Charon to end up in the kingdom of Hades. Every soul had to give a coin for the transfer to Charon. The pendant necklace ‘Acheron’ belongs to the Tangram collection which was inspired by the shapes of Greek nature. The jewelry of this collection was created from small shards of glass that create bright reflections just like nature in its many alternations during the day. They took their names from the rivers, lakes, mountains and the endless Greek light, elements that compose mountainous Greece, as charming as the coastal one.

The brown bottle is a beer bottle. Beers are usually in a brown bottle or in a green one and the reason is specific. Breweries before the 17th century used transparent bottles for beers. But they found that the clear glass beer bottles, when left in the sun for some time, released a terrible odor into the contents of the bottle through a chemical reaction that was caused. So they concluded that beer bottles should be colored brown or green to protect the contents from ultraviolet radiation.
Symbolism of Brown color
Brown is the color of the earth, it shows that something is reliable, strong and stable. The brown color also symbolizes self-control and the ability of persuasion as it radiates simplicity, peace and a sense of intimacy.
People who wear brown often are steady, energetic and reserved and great supporters of peace. They do not support spontaneity and impulse, as they feel more secure through planning. One profession that we often see wearing brown, are the salespeople or the business executives. This is because brown, in addition to stability and persuasiveness, exudes a sense of confidence.
