Cleopatra Bracelet

In ancient Egypt, the asp (or Egyptian cobra) was the symbol of royalty, deity, sovereignty, and the Pharaoh’s divine authority over the land. This bracelet pays homage to Kleopatra VII (the more common Romanized spelling being Cleopatra), the last anointed Pharaoh of Egypt and one of my Disir, who took her life by allowing an asp to bite her rather then become a prisoner of Rome. Wearing her symbol proudly proclaims your own sovereignty and authority over your own fate.

A three-dimensional gold-plated pewter asp pendant adorns a circle of 12 sleek dark gold-sheen obsidian rounds, filled with shimmery chatoyancy, alternating with honey amber Czech glass crystal rondelles and green hematite spacers. The beads are strung on strong, stretchy polyester that slips easily over your wrist. (The last photo shows what it looks like worn.) The bracelet’s circumference is about 6 1/2 inches, and the asp pendant measures 1/2 inch by 3/6 of an inch (at the widest point of its coils).

Golden obsidian is a powerful stone of protection, forming a shield against negativity around its wearer. It can also be useful in scrying, enabling you to go deep into the core of an issue by connecting with the past, present, and future.

This bracelet is $35. I do accept layaway, and would be happy to set up a payment plan for you if you really love this but it would be more convenient to pay for it over two or three installments. Please take a look at my layaway policy and then contact me if you’d like to make arrangements.

I also have a second Cleopatra bracelet in the shop, featuring the same gold-filled snake pendant, but with green garnet rounds and gold stardust beads. You can find that here.
