Details

Sinuous and silent, a rattlesnake coils its slender body into a ring by Francisco Sanchez. To Mexico's Huichol people, serpents are middlemen between people and the spirit world. Rattlesnakes are respected as the tongue of Tatewari, the Fire God. The Rain Goddess is often symbolized by the serpent as rain itself, a great coiled serpent or storm clouds from which millions of tiny snakes represent rainfall. The artisan pays tribute to Huichol belief with this handcrafted sterling silver wrap ring. The artisan stamps his work Citlali, meaning "Star" in the Nahuatl language.

"Gorgeous Ring"

What a beautiful ring! It looks gorgeous on every finger and with the snake's head either going up your finger or in the direction of your hand. Truly incredible. You can wear it to any occasion.

The small earrings I purchased are of exceptional craftsman and quality. The earring was crafted so that when placed on the ear it would lay in a way to show off the design. The design is unique and beautiful.
