Caracol Rope Necklace
Land and sea snails during metamorphosis were very common in the early period of gold work. Time was conceived as being cyclical or like a spiral. The metamorphosis that occurred in certain animals, such as insects, represented the never-ending cycle of life-the death, and rebirth that all beings were subjected to.
This snail was inspired by a gold pendant from 500 B.C currently on display at the Gold Museum in Bogota, Colombia. This pendant is suspended by a cotton rope with teardrop end caps and can be adjusted to your desired length. Wear it as a belt or a chocker.
