Vintage Sterling & Snake Earrings
Native American vintage sterling silver studs in the shape of snakes are one-of-a-kind. Dating from the 1970's the slender figures dangle off the earlobe and are subtly and refreshingly imperfect in design. Snakes represent many things but these earrings are believed to be made by the Hopi tribe of North American Natives and were a symbol of fertility representing creative life force, birth and regeneration. 2013 is the year of the snake within the Chinese Zodiac so these earrings seem especially appropriate. In great vintage condition with slight signs of wear.
