Hygieia and Medusa seem to be strong influences in my life despite the fact that I don't like real life snakes at all. As SYMBOLS of transformation and rebirth though I think that they can be quite beautiful. Medusa is being re-imagined as (or perhaps she always has been) the protector of women's mysteries and Hygieia, a goddess of healing (with herbs, in particular), is still sworn to in the Hippocratic Oath that doctors take before they can practice. There are many more goddesses who are associated with snakes so feel free to let this piece represent whomever you choose.

From the top of the ribbon to the bottom of the dangles the piece measures 11.25 inches and the plaque itself is 5 inches wide. The snake is a wonderfully detailed antique silver brass finding. Gemstones included are Red Tiger Eye, Jade, Red and Green Garnet and dyed Crab Fire Agate. The pendant on the longest dangle is a rare Brown Moss Agate that measures 1.75 X 1.25 inches. Moss Agates, whether they are the more common green or this brown, generally have a milky coloring to them but when held up to the light you can see all the gorgeous "moss". In the fifth picture I give you this perspective.

If you need any more information about the goddesses or the gemstones please convo me.

Enjoy!!!
