'The Uncoiling' mini series is the second half of the Winter Solstice Collection. I wanted to create a collection of pieces representing the descent into darkness as we approach the Solstice, and a collection of work that represents the uncoiling that many of us feel with the slow return of sunlight. The serpent in this series represents renewal, the shedding of the old self, and the return of light.
The second amulet I created for this series features a hand carved snake on a pentagram. As the snake weaves it's way through the each of the elements, represented by the points of the pentagram, it slowly sheds it's skin and rises from the depths of the Underworld back up towards the 'spirit', our very essence, where we find the key to renewal and new beginnings. Pendant is hung upon a 75cm sterling silver cable chain.
This amulet has been oxidised to bring out the surface textures, sterling silver may further darken an oxidise over time due to the skins natural oils.
This piece is a one of a kind design, and will be shipped within 1-2 weeks of purchase date.
