      I've seen things that remind me of this image before- I think it maybe stone wall plaques? Whatever the case I think this is a fantastic piece and the detail in her snake/hair is really nice especially for such a little piece. A brilliant interpretation of Medusssssssaaa!!!

      Thanks all for loving my Medusa :)

      So thrilled you liked this Phil, I really love mythology stories and what is more dramatic than the Medusa legend, many thanx for the fab compliment

      Pascale I really hoped my snakes here would appeal to you, when I look at them I see the basketful of asps that bit Cleopatra! Totally grateful for the wonderful praise, thanks so much

      Sean thank you I'm really glad you enjoyed this rather offbeat selection from me, I saw this and just knew I had to have it, tells a story just by looking at it!

      Isn't it so cool MrsT thank you for the super compliment, even tho it's a mythology theme I have to have an animal touch (snakes) in there lol

      Mary I hoped you would like this with the colorful lucite, Kramer did a few nice pieces with it (Eileen has their beautiful Pegasus), and it was such a lucky & unusual find 4 me, thank you for the super comment

      Thanks Rose for the kind words, this piece wowed me as well, I love to find something different & glad it was enjoyed

      Wow, I take off one day and look what I miss.
      I have always wanted this piece! I've seen it in white & coral, but these colors are so much better. VERY HARD to find any of Kramer's mythology pieces, to this day I haven't seen another Kramer Pegasus, been on the lookout cuz Ken wanted one. So happy you are the one to find this iconic piece! I can't say enough!
      IT'S FABULOUS, my friend!!

      One other thing..
      Snakes unnerve me. I would find it hard to wear "snake" jewelry of any sort, expect for Bluboi's "Sir Hiss"! Ha!
      And of course, now Jenni's Medusa!!! :)
    12. Newfld Newfld, 5 months ago
      Lol fhrjr2, thank you for the funny and kind comment!

      Eileen really appreciate all that background info about the Kramer mythology pieces, I did think it was an unusual listing and snapped it up pretty fast. I agree, snakes are not the most appealing jewelry, yet I am kinda partial to the fancy serpent clasp bracelets made by Ciner & Cartier - I mean, if they were good enough for Liz Taylor right! Great praise as always my friend, so much appreciated

      With sincere thanks for the love

      Lauren I just noticed your super and cool Medussssa comment, made me laugh as I am still picturing her floating around hissing and stopping before men's faces in Clash of the Titans, with a half beautiful and half monstrous face! She was also terrifying in the old Hammer film The Gorgon, ck it out. Thanks for the kind words my friend

      Many thanks Roycroft and jbingham for the super kind love

      Needed another peek at this wonderful mythological piece from Kramer...

      My Kramer Pegasus is "intertwined", you might say as Pegasus was "born" from the neck of the Gorgon, Medusa when Perseus beheaded her.
      Medusa was once a beautiful young "maid", but when Poseidon had his way with her, she was turned into the monster by Athena. Talk about unfair! That's "the gods" for you. Ha!
      I have always loved mythology.
      I have also seen this piece in white & "jade"besides white & coral...still love the colors of yours the best Jenni!
    15. Newfld Newfld, 5 months ago
      Great mythology info Eileen, did not know about the Pegasus connection to Medusa! I just knew when I saw this piece not to pass it up, as those Gorgon films are among my fave horror pix (without the extreme modern gore :) Glad you liked Kramer's version here, thanks for wonderful comment

      Very grateful for the love Designer, thank you so much
