The Details...

This necklace is constructed from gold plated metal. It features a snake chain detailed at either end with the head and tail of a snake. The necklace is adjustable in length - a clip behind the snake's head can be secured to the necklace chain at any point along its length. So, the necklace can be worn as a choker or looser. The necklace measures 40cm in length. 

A Short History...

This necklace dates from the mid-century Egyptian Revival (probably c.1950) when themes and motifs from Ancient Egypt, such as snakes, became popular once again in art and design.
