Artifact Analysis:
The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol, depicting the snake eating its own tale. It has shown up in myths from ancient Egypt and Greece; it has been connected to the Aztec God Quetzalcoatl and the Norse serpent Jörmungandr. To every culture, it means something slightly different.

To the people of the Landus Fantasticus, the Ouroboros is a special symbol indeed. To them, it is a positive representative of a cycle which begins anew as soon as it ends. Like the Phoenix, the Ouroboros is thus a symbol of hope; although life changes, there are new beginnings and new opportunities.

This necklace can be worn two ways: over the head as a single-stranded necklace (approximately 30 inches long), or as a double-stranded necklace with the toggle clasp in the front (approximately 15 to 15.5 inches long). When worn with the toggle clasp in the front, it reminds me of an Ouroboros—and that is why I have chosen to name this style after this symbol of hope.

This Ouroboros necklace is made with copper metal and two shades of Czech fire-polished glass: shimmering green and striking purple. It is both striking and delicate, whether worn as a long necklace, or as an Ouroboros choker—and perhaps can serve as a hopeful reminder that every change is a new beginning.
