Death consists, indeed, in a repeated process of unrobing, or unsheathing. The immortal part of man shakes off from itself, one after the other, its outer casings, and - as the snake from its skin, the butterfly from its chrysalis - emerges from one after another, passing into a higher state of consciousness.     -Annie Besant

These pieces are inspired by transformation as a symbol of the snake. The concept of heaven and hell has been described as how we live on in the memory of others, and this snake has been similarly granted a form of immortality by the fact that its bones have been transformed into something new and beautiful.

These vertebrae come from a black racer snake, a super common, friendly, and helpful snake here in Florida. This poor little one was found in a park after what appeared to be an incident with a lawnmower. 

Earring hooks shown are hypoallergenic niobium, but are also available in two other options, suitable for gauged ears - leverback earring hooks, made of nickel-free brass, or 16g copper wires. If you would prefer one of these styles, please include a note at checkout.
