Gold Ouroboros Etched Copper Necklace, with Real Snakeskin. Perfect for 2012, the year of the dragon!

This pendant was lasercut from sheet copper, etched by hand, then gold-plated with a 1.5 micron thickness of 14K gold. This is a very durable and thick method of gold-plating that will last a long time. After I get it back, I inlay real snakeskin (shedding) into the etched area.. I do not injure any snakes, it's just the skin collected from their living area after they have shed. I then cover the skin with a protective finish. The pendant measures about 1.25" across and hangs from an 18" gold-filled chain with a lobster clasp.

The Ouroboros (a snake or dragon swallowing its own tail) usually represents something constantly re-creating itself, or things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. A symbol of this type has been used in many cultures, including the Aztecs, Kundalini (yoga), the Freemasons, and west African religions.

There is also a larger ouroboros here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79774578/large-ouroboros-necklace-etched-copper

*This is NOT the exact necklace you will be receiving. They will all have slight variations in the etch and the snakeskin, since they are each handmade by me. If you would like a custom necklace with your own snake's shedding, please contact me and I will let you know where to ship it.*

Frequently asked questions about jtopolski

Yes I do offer wholesale! You can send me a convo with your email address and I will send line sheets and info, or find me here on the Etsy Wholesale platform.
I am happy to create custom orders. If there is an etching or carving you would like that I believe I can add to my line, it will be similarly priced to other stock items. If it is a unique item just for you, design rates start at about $150, then go up based on how many hours of labor and revisions we need to go through, plus the final cost of materials.
I am also happy to cast your bees into resin, or use your personal snake's shedding on an ouroboros! Just shoot me a convo, and I can send you my shipping address.
