Medusa Entwined Snakes Necklace, Hand-Cast Bronze, Love Power, Serpents, Reptile, Victorian, Egyptian, Royalty

When I came across this beautifully detailed antique snake charm, I knew I wanted to use it somehow, so I decided to cast it in bronze and sterling silver using lost-wax casting. I've twisted two snakes together and attached them to antique brass textured cable chain to create a necklace that is stunning in its simplicity. It can be worn hanging straight or off-center. Lobster clasp.

Snakes, or serpents, have symbolized something in every culture and every religion on earth from ancient times to modern. Every culture from Ancient Egypt to modern Native American cultures has revered snakes as beings of power. Since a snake sheds it skin, they have historically been seen as symbols of regeneration, rebirth or transformation. Ancient Celts used the snake as a symbol of secret knowledge. Snakes have been a symbol of fertility (most ancient cultures), of guardianship (Hinduism, Buddhism, ancient Cambodia) and of luck in battle (Norse). The Hopi have Awanyu, the Aztecs and Maya have Quetzalcoatl (two snake Gods) and the Minoans had a snake Goddess. They were carried down through the ages as symbols of wisdom. In the Victorian era, entwined snakes were seen as a symbol of everlasting love.

Select from bronze with antique brass chain, bronze with sterling silver chain, or sterling silver with sterling chain. Please allow 10-14 days for casting in bronze. Sterling available now.

They can be paired with the Medusa Snake Earrings: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/RedAvaDesigns/tools/listings/state:draft,sort:update_date,view:table,stats:true/478849669
