This necklace was originally $350

A very substantial, sterling silver pendant I've carved of a snake coiling into itself. The pendant is 2 1/2" long by 1/1/4" wide (6.35 x 3.175cm) and is suspended from a bezel-set, 22x17mm amethyst crystal cluster. The entire piece, including the bail, is 3 1/4" long ( 8.255cm). A 30" (76.2cm), sterling snake chain that close with a lobster clasp is included.

I was moved to carve this piece after viewing an arresting photo of silent film star Theda Bara in costume as Cleopatra. She has her hands raised to her head and gazes very intently at the viewer and on her breasts she wears two bejeweled snakes. It is those snakes that inspired this necklace. I've carved the snakes to have a light, elongated-hammered texture. That along with the raw beauty of the amethyst crystal lends a very ancient, and powerful feeling to this piece.
