Good morning, my darlings, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!
I love this holiday so much. Silliness, exuberance, the breaking of rules, and the possibility of magic – what’s not to love?
In honor of Halloween, I’ve decided to do a roundup of fantastic snake jewelry! As we’ve discussed before, snakes motifs in jewelry represent all kinds of wonderful, romantic things – but, being snakes, they still exude an air of sensuous danger and temptation.
Without further ado, please enjoy the following glorious serpentine jewels.
A box of delicious antique snake rings from Roy Rover!
I met this mind-blowing snake bracelet at last year’s Lueur show.

Someday, I’ll find the right Victorian snake necklace for me. I loved this one, but it didn’t feel right on me. Still a beauty! Spotted at Keyamour.
That’s me covered in snakes and I love it. Happy Halloween, darlings. Go put on a costume and eat some candy.
