Historically snakes represent rebirth, transformation and healing because they go through the process of shedding their old skin. The scientific word for this is ecdysis. Snake imagery has been a steady icon throughout the last 5,000 years of jewelry-making. Recently, I’ve been particularly drawn to this animal because of the transformations happening in my own life. These earrings exude power, and that feeling is something that I have started to channel and remind myself of everyday, that I am powerful- and so are you.
I carved these earrings out of wax and had them cast into metal. They measure 32mm long and 17mm wide (at the largest point).
The brass version of this earring is currently on pre-order, and will ship out by June 3rd.
