The use of Snakes in Jewellery Making:
Jewellery featuring snakes has been worn and adored by many ancient and modern civilizations. ... As snakes shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. The ouroboros is a symbol of eternity andcontinual renewal of life. Some believe that the serpent represents sexual desire.
