Embracing the Serpent
A ring I did in honor of the exploration of magic, how it's a reflection of source, and to hold space for its expression and growth 💚
This is a one of a kind silver ring inspired by the creation myth surrounding the plant Caapi, known as Ayahuasca, and features a beautifully cut peridot by @gemstonealchemy .
"Once upon a time, a long, long time ago there lived among the Tukanoans a woman, the first woman of ‘creation’ who drowned men in visions. To the Tukanoans intercourse is a visionary experience in which men are ‘drowned in visions’.
The first woman became pregnant by the sun-god who had impregnated her through the eye. The child was born in a flash of light. The woman, whose name was Yaye, cut the umbilical cord and rubbed its body with magical herbs thus shaping its body. The child became known as Caapi, a narcotic plant, who lived to become an old man. He jealously guards his hallucinatory powers, his Caapi, which is the source from which the Tukanoan men received their semen.
The myth essentially tells the story of the alchemical marriage, in which wo/man seeks union with the god-source, divine power of creation. Thus the religious experience is also always a sexual one. To quote Schultes and Hofmann: For the Indian, “the hallucinatory experience is essentially a sexual one… to make it sublime, to pass from the erotic, the sensual, to a mystical union with the mythic era, the intrauterine stage, is the ultimate goal, attained by a mere handful but coveted by all.”
Throughout history the Serpent has been the symbolic gatekeeper of magic and has been largely associated with the Kundalini, sexuality, life, death, cycles, knowledge, and power. This ring is intended to hold space for the exploration of these innate truths and to freely express this power found within.

Feeling that serpentine energy this morning 💚💚
“The medicine of the snake is considered magical, especially among ancient healers, who used the Serpentine crystal stone as an antidote for deadly snakebites. In crystal healing, the Serpentine crystal meaning harnesses powerful healing energy that works to create an energetic and protective shield around the body. When you feel safe and guarded from proverbial snakebites, it gives you the freedom and security you need to glow with love and happiness.
The Serpentine meaning reminds us to shoot for the stars, because everybody's inner child knows their true purpose in life. Even if your dreams have been buried by societal expectations and demands of adulthood, the Serpentine crystal stone meaning serves as the catalyst to free you from the shackles of society and self-imposed limitations” (energymuse.com)

Swirling colours of pastel glass are melted together overnight then handcarved into a heart and then filled into curves and then fired again overnight in the kiln...phew! It takes a lot of time but its worth it in the end to see it finished!🤗 📸 by @noirphotique
