Terpsichore (terp·SIK·uh·ree) is the ancient muse of dance; her very name means “delighting in dance" from the Greek words terpsis τέρπω "to delight" and choros χoρός "dance".
Terpsichore is the muse of those who are light of foot and light of heart; those who find joy and redemption in movement. She inspires dancers to push themselves to greatness, break down barriers, and express a spectrum of emotion without speaking a single word.
This handcrafted pendant depicts Terpsichore in an original etching from 1832, floating above the ground as if mid-leap.
The trademark Common Era raised molten rim frames the pendant, which is suspended from a finely-woven Italian-made spiga chain.
