A new addition to our expanding serpent collection, we are welcoming the Serpent Kiss Earrings to Dea Dia. An often-maligned species, we find beauty in the powerful serpent. The shedding of the skin represents rebirth, renewal and transformation which are favorite themes of Dea Dia designer & owner, Jessica Lawson. They make the perfect totem or guardian!
These earrings were first sculpted by hand in wax in our high desert studio (home to many snakes - the desert - not the studio!) before being cast in recycled metals with sterling silver posts and backs in DTLA. We love asymmetry so please be aware of the post placement: 1 on the head and 1 on the tail. The Serpent Kiss Earrings are available in recycled brass, sterling silver or gold plated. FYI: the sterling silver- and gold-plated styles are made to order and may take a couple of weeks to ship.
Please note, our brass is a mixture of 75% copper and 25% zinc and is lead and nickel free. Many people experience green discoloring on their skin from brass. This is due to the metals mixing with your particular oils and ph levels. This reaction is harmless and will wash off.
If you don't like the discoloration, we suggest you order gold plated, sterling silver or solid gold. To minimize this, you can periodically paint the inside of your brass ring with clear nail polish or lacquer, avoid mixing with moisture and sweat, and take off before going to bed or applying lotions or oils.
