Ouroboros IV: Silver Snake Rib Hoop Earrings
This item is made to order. This means it will ship within 3-4 weeks, but sometimes earlier.
The Ouroboros Collection
Cast from an assortment of Boa and Python ribs that were gifted to me. Ribs have been molded and cast in silver. Two are attached back to back to create each hoop!
- All earrings are oxidized before being carefully burnished/polished. This step brings out the glimmering silver along the edges while the surface remains a shadowy grey that highlights the organic texture of each rib.
Thickness varies due to the tapered shape of the bones but each individual rib generally measures about 2-5mm thick and 50 mm long. The two attached to create a hoop can measure about 90mm in length though they look a little smaller because of the hoop's curvature.
- Every pair of earrings come with sterling silver wingnuts to keep them secured.
- Every set is handmade and may have minor variations. Each is completely unique and will vary slightly piece to piece. Photos are an example of the design.
The patina and a protective coating have been carefully applied but please take certain precautions to protect the integrity of your jewelry! Do not swim or bathe with it on as this could potentially wear on the surface - especially with chlorine or salt water. Everyday outdoor and daytime wear is perfectly normal but please do not leave in the sun (on a windowsill for example) for extended periods of time as this could affect the protective coating and color of the patina. When not being worn, wrap in a cloth or its accompanying jewelry box to protect.

All boxes measure 11" x 8" x 2"
