I must admit I prefer seeing snakes in metal form, rather than live and in person. This being the Year of the Snake, this creature is front and center of many an accessories collection and is the subject of Bulgari’s retrospective exhibit of its Serpenti jewelry collection.
I’ve always liked snakes in jewelry–especially rings and bracelets which seem to lend the sinuous, wrapping ability of the creature to the form of the object.
You don’t have to shop at Bulgari to have a beauty wrap itself around your wrist. A quick search on Etsy yielded 506 items. Here is one of my favorites:
Consider this set–a vintage Whiting & Davis stamped belt and bracelet. Amazing….
Mesh, enameled, bejeweled–snakes are available in all different interpretations. This is the year to embrace the snake!
