Guardian II – Pendant, Artisan Handcrafted Snake Head Serpent Pendant
Snake Head Serpent Collection
**This listing is for one pendant only (no stone.) Other pieces are sold separately, please see other listings.**
Snakes and serpents are one of the oldest, most complex symbols used in folklore, architecture and art worldwide, dating back to ancient times. They provoke fear as well as respect. In summary, they represent change, transformation, rebirth, life and death, immortality, fertility, sexual energy/ phallus, passion, healing, cleansing, eternal love, cosmos/ universal connection. For me they also represent mystery, intrigue and protection.
There is a whole lot of time, patience, skill and love that went into crafting the pieces that makeup my snake head ‘Guardian’ collection. Each piece is shaped, sawed, soldered, filed and polished, starting with raw materials. The dimensional and highly detailed pendant is constructed from your choice of either solid sterling silver or a combination of sterling silver and copper. A small Southwestern embellishment adorns the backside. The overall styling of this pendant is timeless, with rustic allure. It is very well made to last many years with proper care. The metalwork has been given a soft brushed satin finish with a black oxidized patina. I have used a professional grade wax sealer to help prevent air oxidation (tarnishing.) Although it is long lasting, it is not permanent. This pendant is very comfortable to wear all day long, as well as easy to dress up or down.
A few of the listing photos shows ‘Guardian II – Pendant’ paired with complimenting earrings, and other necklace pendants which are NOT included in this listing. The earrings are to give an idea as to how this pendant would look paired with such. This listing is for one pendant without the stone. The other pieces are listed separately. The rock slabs that are seen in one of the listing photos is the type of Bloodstone Jasper rock material from which I use to cut the stone for some of the other pieces within this collection.
My photography was taken both indoors and outdoors in the natural, indirect light. Colors do vary according to lighting, and in addition they will appear slightly different on monitors and devices depending on personal settings. The listing photos don’t do justice for this pendant.
