This piece is part of the Stoneriver Curated Curiosities Collection ~ handpicked pieces that keep us curious.
The Serpent Cuff is released following the overwhelming demand for our handmade Bakunawa Bangles. The Serpent Cuff is bendable, and can be manipulated into various types of jewelry.
The Bakunawa is a serpent-like dragon in Philippine Mythology (Bicolano & Visayan origin).
Often, serpents are connected with spirituality as they represent deities and other supernatural forces governing the cosmic balance of the upper and lower world.
In Philippine mythology, the Bakunawa is known to be responsible for earthquakes as it crawls under the crevices of the earth; and eclipses as it tries to devour the moon.
This creature possesses qualities beyond comprehension of our ancient ninunos; inciting fear and awe to whoever witnesses them.
The piece is brass plated with Gold.
20-inches bendable Serpent.
To maintain brass jewelry:
• Keep away from perfumes, body oils, or other chemicals.
• Do not wear in the water.
• If your jewelry inevitable gets wet, dry it out completely immediately to avoid oxidation.
• Brass jewelry will eventually fade into its natural brass look (reminiscent of antique gold finish) ☼
