In creating The Serpent, I was intent on establishing a visual representation of the traits "Guardianship" and "Regeneration".
Guardianship - to hold one's ground and defend against negativity, to protect and shield what is near and dear.
Regeneration - rebirth, renewal, casting away shadows of doubt and of fear, all misgivings and moving forwards.
Potent stuff, I know
but what the hey, this is my first ring and I wanted to do it right!
