CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This pendant is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
An engraving of the feathered Serpent god from the Mexican Pre-Hispanic civilization inspires this pendant. The feathered Serpent was known as Kukulkan by the Mayan civilization and Quetzalcoatl by Aztecs.
He was the god of resurrection and reincarnation for Maya people, as was Quetzalcoatl. He was the god of the four elements (air, fire, earth and water).
This pendant is really one of a kind. It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas-relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished.
Etching is an artisanal process, which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
Polished, shiny finish.
The feathered snake pendant is available in two sizes:
- Large: 4.5 x 3.3cm.
- Small: 3 x 2 cm.
As we currently dwell in Mexico, provide a period of 2 to 5 weeks to receive your order. Thank you for taking this information into account before ordering in our shop (please, read the complete conditions of shipping here).

I hope you will love this jewel as much as I enjoyed creating it.
