COLLECTIONS: AMPHORAS OF HOPE


Using the myth of Pandora’s Box as inspiration, Militza Ortiz has designed a new collection of pendants based on an optimistic interpretation of this classic Greek myth. Pandora’s box was actually a jar- an amphora and if one understands the myth to say: countless evils fled Pandora's jar and plague human existence; the hope that we might be able to master these evils remains imprisoned inside the jar. Life is not hopeless.....and there is hope in each one of these amphoras.
