Individually embossed leather segments are decorated with gold & silver plated diamonds & linked together to form an articulated serpent necklet, with gold plated chain. The head ( finished with a metallic crown, vintage glass rhinestone opal eye & patent leather tongue ) hooks on to the tail.
An age-old symbol in jewellery, variously signifying royalty (in ancient Egypt), wisdom, good fortune, good health & healing (ancient Greece), sexuality & temptation (Christianity), & fertility (Vodou), & was imbued with the sentiment of undying, eternal love from the Romans to the Victorians, particularly in circular form as the tail-devouring 'Ouroboros'. /// Drawing on these disparate influences, our serpent pieces use graphic wedges of embossed leather, linked together to form an articulated body, decorated with delicate gold & silver plated diamonds.
