I take a considerable amount of inspiration from the Art Nouveau movement.  This pendant was inspired by a serpant necklace I found in one of my many books. 

The stone is a white agate, and vintage black beads adorn the sterling silver chain.  I originally cut the snakes out separately & soldered them together along with the bezel setting to save on metal.  Once again my love for Intaglio is where the etching originated from.  I used Nitric Acid to etch the silver, and I rub in an enamel paint to help bring out the details of the lines.

Necklace is available to view on my website.
