The snake in Celtic mythology was a symbol of wisdom, cunning, fertility and immortality/reincarnation (as it sheds it's skin, and is born anew).
Kin to the Dragon, horned snakes often feature in Celtic art and mythology as guardians of golden treasure, secrets and knowledge. Dragons in British folklore are often snake-like - the legless "wyrms" lake and sea serpents, and many characteristics and symbolism is shared by both.
Snakes represented the powers of Nature, healing, but also hidden dangers - as the Adder, common to Europe, is venomous.. Jewellery featuring snakes, as with dragons, represented Kingship, power and divine authority. The snake is also an ancient symbol for healing.
Front detail is 17cm wide by 10cm long // 6 1/2 inches by 4 inches.
Chain is 40 to 48 cm (adjustable) // 16 to 19 inches

If the alteration is simple, like chain length, no charge. For time-consuming changes, or use of more expensive materials (like sterling silver), a small extra charge will be made.
I will then re-list your item as a Custom Order, and drop you the link when it's ready to purchase.

These in turn are double-bubble wrapped: bubble wrap around the box, and shipped in a padded envelope. Short of a Godzilla attack, they should arrive pristine and intact.
If extra gift wrapping is required, that's fine - please let me know via message or at Checkout so I can design something appropriate for you.
I am a registered small business and open to larger orders and wholesale - reductions depend on the nature of the item, and how many you wish to purchase.
