Big Ouroboros Hoops
Life Cast Snake Hoops Earrings or Ear Weigths Ouroboros Hoops
Cast from a real 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; symbol of the eternal return, the destruction-creation cycle.
At first glace this minimalist design will look like a simple circle , but with a closer look you’ll see the details of that beautiful creature.
Snake entangled on itself Oxidized and then roughly polished to give more character, The ouroboros is about 50mm ( 2") in diameter they are a bit on the heavy side but should be comfortable enough!
