When it comes to snakes, most people seem to have an innate fear of them. Maybe that's why the source of evil in the Garden of Eden was a serpent.

But there are good snakes as well. Consider that the Hopi Indians in North American included snakes in their rituals asking the gods for fertile lands and good crops; and Africa, Mesopotamia and Iran all had cultures that at some point worshiped the benevolent powers of the snake.

This snake looks like a good snake to us, maybe because its body language is so non-threatening. It's gracefully looped into a naturalistic diamond shape which is quite ornamental. Its scales too are decorative and simplified, with some antique blacking to accent them, as are its eyes.

An interesting detail is the way the hanger is partially recessed in back which adds to the impression that the snake is holding onto the chain with its mouth.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
