Python Protection Arrow Pin (3OAK)
This listing is for one ONE OF A KIND sterling silver arrow pin, from an edition of three I am releasing.
Each arrow pin is hand sawed/filed/stamped with their own uniques designs/and set with truly eye catching piece of shed from my pet Ball Python's shed. The whole piece is given a patina to make the piece look antiqued, and high contrast, and then given a wax coating with some lavender oil, to keep the patina in place. The pin backs are hand made, however I will be sending your arrow pin with a "Pin Keeper" backing. They require an allen wrench to take your pin on and off, but that way you will never lose your new heirloom handmade Python Arrow Pin <3
There are three pin options, they are "A" (second photo) , "B" (third photo - SOLD), and "C" (fourth photo - SOLD).
Snakes are often used as symbols of both death and immortality. Joseph Campbell once wrote. "Serpents seem to incarnate the elementary mystery of life wherever apparent opposites are conjoined".
Like a snake whose eyes always remain open, this pin will aid you in being alert and aware of your surroundings.
DetailsEach piece is completely handmade, so please keep in mind patina shades and the exact texture of your snake shed will vary. As will the exact size of each pin, but they will stay pretty close to the following...
The arrow measures 1/2" tall and 2 1/2" across.
The python "stone" measures 1/2" across.
Each pin comes with two Pin Keepers, you will need your own allen wrench.
As a side note, due to the natural and delicate nature of the snake shed it is not recommended to wear this piece underwater/extended time in the rain. Without thinking I have worn mine swimming and it was set completely air tight and there were no issues, however it is always wise to not press ones luck and allow delicate and treasured pieces to receive only minimal time in the elements.
