Silver Snake by GeshaR Silver Snake by GeshaR
This design is inspired by this photo of a real snake [link] by the wonderful :icondreamingdragondesign:

It can be seen as my humble tribute to Slytherin :-)

The model was hand-carved in wax then cast in sterling silver and patinated to enhance the texture.
The pendant is 3.8 (1.5 inches) cm wide and 2.5 cm (1 inch) high.
The back of the model is hollow, so it is light relative to its size.
This item is currently availiable in my Etsy shop: [link]
Original wax carving and WIP can be seen here: [link]

Yes, wax was hand-carved. It's a second attempt - the first ended up too thin.

I'm amazed that you got it so perfect-looking in only two tries. :) Very well done!

And a snake will slither its way around any obstacle.
