This bold design is a one of a kind hand-formed metal cuff coated in real snake shed, and is a stunning accessory that takes "earthy" style to the next level. Dress up or down- either way you'll be wearing an adornment that will turn heads, start conversations, and delight the eye of the beholder.

What is “Snake Shed”, and how is that different than Snake SKIN? 
A snake's skin does not grow with it, so as it increases in size, it needs to shed its outer layer of scales (including the special scales that cover its eyes!) in order to keep growing. 
Every month or so, they go through about a 2-week shedding process, after which they emerge from their old skin with shiny, beautiful new skin that was growing underneath. Healthy snakes will shed in one continuous piece, rolling it off like a sock. This is Snake Shed
Snake SKIN, on the other hand, is harvested by killing the animal and skinning it, just like the pelt of a mammal.

Using snake SHED is ethical and safe for the animal.
Each type of snake has different types of scales and patterns. This bracelet was made using the shed from a full grown Eastern Indigo in my collection named "Naga". His species is the largest snake native to North America. 
This is a small size cuff, see measurements below. Cuffs have a 1” gap. Use a fabric tape to measure the circumference of your wrist to judge your size.
The bracelet has been coated with many layers of lacquer and fixatives to prevent decay and tear.

Care Instructions

The metal has been treated with lacquer and a special wax to preserve the coloration, prevent tarnishing, and prevent scratching to a certain degree. Please keep in mind that elements in the air and natural oils in your skin can eventually erode protection over time. Avoid wearing lotions and perfumes while wearing items that touch your skin directly. If the inside begins to tarnish, you can clean it, and reapply a spray lacquer. Make sure to avoid using a cleaning product or abrasives on the patinated finish, as that cannot be repaired without a refinish and reapplication of the patina. Do not swim or bathe with the jewelry on.
