This is one of my favorite pieces. I love the legend of Cleopatra and her snake bracelet, and of her chosen end with the asp. And I adore that Queen Victoria’s wedding ring was a snake with an emerald. Historically, and across many cultures, the snake symbolizes love, luck and continuity, as well as the dual expressions of good and evil, fertility and rebirth, poison and medicine. I have always found snakes to be remarkable creatures, as well as sometimes one of comic relief. In Montana, there was a black snake that would climb in through the outside vent and nap in our dryer. Mom’s “laundry shrieks” still make me giggle. I designed this one as a sleepy snake, with his tail covering his eyes. (possibly due to remembrance of the dryer snake. :~p ) I love the weight of this piece on my finger, reminding me of the love, luck and continuity surrounding me no matter what is going on in my day.*Please keep in mind that all products are made to order, and allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
