In Greek mythology, Electra (Greek: Ἠλέκτρα, Ēlektra) was an Argive princess and daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra. She and her brother Orestes plotted revenge against their mother Clytemnestra and stepfather Aegisthus for the murder of their father, Agamemnon. Electra is the main character in the Greek tragedies Electra by Sophocles and Electra by Euripides and has inspired various other works.

This is Electra, Daughter of Agamemnon and a Princess of Argive.

This is the grave mask of Agamemnon, the King of Argive. You can view it in the Archaeological Museum of Athens.

The "Electra" Necklace

I created this necklace, utilizing an ancient Greek motif, in graduated links, and paired the cool, hard, silver with the warm, softness of a Dove Grey Greek Suede cord. I imagined that the Princess Electra herself may have worn such a necklace. You can find it in my Etsy Shop.
