During WWI Turkish prisoners of war made crocheted, beaded snake souvenirs to sell and send to family. After the war the craft spread and became a cottage industry. During the 1920s these beaded snakes were made as wearable jewelry. The authentic vintage necklaces are very rare and highly sought after. Our version combines the wow factor of the original with the wearability of a modern piece.
Our handmade snake is super flexible due to its crocheted body. Made of Czech glass, with pink and white beads on a white crocheted base. It is worn biting its tail to desired fit. Can also be worn as a bracelet. Approximately 20" long.
