Curling Snake Pendant

Curling Snake Pendant


Snakes are one of the most perfect Art Nouveau motifs in my opinion. You can position and twist them however you wish, and they always look perfect and awesome. A little sinuous, a little macabre, a lot sexy. This curling, coiling snake holds a perfect baroque pearl drop from the Sea of Cortez.

This piece is available now and ready to wear. It is 18K yellow gold, with an 18” 18K solid yellow cable chain with a lobster clasp. The baroque pearl drop is from the Sea of Cortez and measures mm. It is a light silvery gray and has lovely rosy, rainbow-y overtones, pink, purple, yellow, blue.

It is also a fully customizable piece. Details below in the Customization section.

This pendant is hand-carved by me using pointy tools and cast using the lost-wax casting method. The Cortez pearl I have half-drilled and mounted securely on a dangling post.

Customization options

  • Pearl (or no pearl): You may choose your pearl drop: Tahitian green awesomeness? Cortez rainbowy swooner? South Sea ivory perfection? You have options. The snake also looks pretty sweet without the pearl too, so you can forego the drop altogether. Email me for more details:

Here is a description of all the metal options I work with. Don’t worry if you don’t see your metal priced out here in my listing; send me an email and I’ll get you a quote.

This ring is hand carved in wax by me in my Portland studio using pointy tools, and then cast using the lost-wax method. I do all finishing work, stone setting, and pearl mounting. Each piece is a highly detailed work of art with great attention to detail at every angle.
