You may have noticed a resurgence in snake themed jewelry as of late; snakes have been featured everywhere for the past few years and there is no sign of this popular motif slowing down any time soon.Antique jewelry featuring snakes is highly collectable, and even more romantic than you may realize. Serpents symbolize wisdom and eternal love. Snakes will long reign supreme with their elegant scales of eternal acceptance since they have been a part of ancient jewelry creations and many other areas of original design.Possibly one of the earliest serpent engagement rings was Queen Victoria's when she wed her first cousin, Prince Albert, in 1840. Her serpent engagement ring was accented with an emerald set head (also Queen Victoria's birthstone). At the time birthstones were a common gemstone of choice for engagement rings.Victorian jewelry has an ageless beauty and a nostalgic value as jewelry was fashioned with hidden meanings to tell a story or send messages through the material composition, color, shape, and featured gemstone. I am inspired by the Victorians, you can see their influence throughout my collections. I searched for a snake ring for a long time before I purchased one for my 40th birthday. This ring ultimately served as the inspiration to create one for my collection, MEMORIALIZE, and for you.
My antique ring is thinner and smaller, made of inconsistent wrapped wire with an uneven, aged patina. However, the homage to the original is everything you want in your future heirloom -- hefty, solid, and bold. This snake will slither onto your finger and complement your most favorite stacking bands. You may customize your snake in a variety of finishes and gemstones. The snake ring can be found in the MEMORIALIZE COLLECTION.Please contact me to customize your snake today.

Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for the purposes of hashtag activism, refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas and the holiday season - the perfect day for a random act of kindness!
Today on social media, I posted an image of the new mini shields I am giving away to the 43 YoungMoms this holiday season. Seeing them laid out like this makes me emotional, I am unsure if I will be able to hold it together when I present them on December 18th. I will have to remember to wear waterproof mascara!
