The Naagini Choker Necklace | Silver
A vintage snake charm dangles from a thin black velvet ribbon, the charm from a lot of abandoned pieces dating to the early 1980s.
There is an immense amount of detail on the snake charm, the diamond-carved texture of its skin visible, its mouth open and ready to strike. The image of the snake has been used through civilizations dating back to as early as the Sumerian people in the 3rd millennium BC, where serpents were carved into stones to represent the messenger god.
A more common use of the snake is the ouroboros, in which the snake is eating its own tail and represents the ever continuous cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Depending on how the snake is presented, one can deem the meaning and purpose of the object itself.
Here, with the snake's body coiled and its mouth open in a hiss, one would wear this choker with the intent of preparedness and self-assurance - an amulet to protect and shield from the outside world.
