In many cultures snakes are believed to have mythical power, often associated with protection. The snake necklace closes by biting its own tail. This creates the ancient form of Ouroboros; symbolising infinity, constancy, rebirth and renewal. The snake's jaws open on a concealed spring and can be moved up and down the body to alter the length of the necklace. This item can also be worn as a bracelet by wrapping it twice around the wrist before clasping the head onto the tail.
