Ouroboros Ear Studs
The mini version of my original Ouroboros, earrings version
Sisters but not twins.
each earring is about 20mm in diameter
Cast from a real baby grass snake that was found dead and given to me; now forever immortalized in sterling silver. I've collected bones and other natural treasures for as long as I can remember, they're mostly gifts, finds or byproducts of regulated and sustainable trapping. I do not promote animal cruelty, I don't see them as trophies, but mostly as a beautiful way to promote exploration and education of the natural world. I love to think of my creations as modern memento Mori pieces and taxidermy jewelry.
Snake symbolism, particularly in jewelry, has been used for so so long; eternal love, wisdom, cyclical nature of element … this creature is sure to enhance your inner magic. Ouroboros; snake eating its own tail; symbol of the eternal return, the destruction-creation cycle.
At first glace these minimalist earrings will look like simple circles , but with a closer look you’ll see the details of that beautiful creature.
This is a “made to order” item, it will be made especially for you, in your size/ desired chain length. Production time is 3-5 business days before shipping.
You will receive an email to confirm shipping and tracking once it leaves the studio. Your order will be shipped via Canada Post, depending on your chosen method. It may arrive after 2-8 days in Canada and USA. International orders may take 2-3 weeks to arrive.
Oxidized and then roughly polished to give more character, wear it alone or layer it with different adornments.
Please consider that the item you will receive may have a slightly different finish than the pictures because they are handmade. With time and wear, your ring will get more light and shiny. Oxidized silver changes over time and patina is not permanent. I can guarantee your jewelry will stay beautiful and unique nonetheless. The way it changes over time gives soul to your jewelry.
