Erica Weiner has the best stories behind her handcrafted jewelry: "There are many ways you can wear this forked-tongue, diamond-studded snake earring; thread it from front to back, from back to front, or tie him in a knot. Really, though, he's at his best when he's maneuvering through multiple piercings. I spiral him through two holes like a corkscrew. You can also thread him from the back, over your lobe, and back through, so his head and tail hang down from behind. With tiny scales on the underside and a fierce look on his face, this snakey looks good from all angles."
Made by hand in Erica Weiner Brooklyn studio.
10k gold head set with a .01 carat diamond. Box style ear chain and tail is gold fill.
Measurements: Snakey is just under 3 1/2 inches long from tongue to tail.
