When I first came to dA over 6 years ago, I was impressed by all the wonderful variety of art from soo many different artisans, I thought, now this is the place for me!
I truly enjoy being a part of this diverse community ... so many things to see and learn.
This necklace was inspired by my Chinese Horoscope. I, also thought that being born in the year of the Chicken was kinda funny, as I am such a chicken when it comes to confrontations!
But, as we all found out, according to the day, I am a Brown Snake.
In school, I was always fascinated by snakes and learned early on, not to be afraid. Actually took care of the snakes in all my science classes all through school. Tried to talk Mom into letting me keep the snakes from the science lab one summer and she would listen to none of my pleadings ...

With all that has happened this month I am happy to finish this piece for this contest! I had a BLAST making this, the dark brown beads are Tiger Iron, that alone sounds soo AWESOME
The large rectangles and twisted stones are Carnelian agate, the green are raw Jade stones, all the red and caramel colored stones are from the agate family with the small black stones being onyx, of course.
The two white and grey/black drops and the oval connectors are Marble found here in Arizona a long, long time ago
and of course the snake closure is an awesome finish to this piece. At first, I thought the two strands should be two separate pieces but put together and they created this beauty.
I hope you enjoyed deviantART's 12th Birthday as much as I did and accept this necklace as my humble way of saying Thank-you deviantART for being so gosh darn AWESOME!
Blessings to all who entered!
