Snake medicine is Transmutation or turning negativity and poisons into wisdom, understanding, wholesomeness, knowledge, sexuality and healing. Snake or Serpent teaches us to shed our past the way she sheds her skin, exemplifying the life-death-rebirth cycle. Serpent, perhaps the most universal archetype, has always represented the healing power of nature. The symbol of medicine, the Caduceus, is formed by one or two serpents intertwining around a rod. This snake is coiled on her eggs, protecting them. She's made of Sterling Silver at 96.2% silver. The necklace bail is hidden underneath; its inner diameter is 5 mm. This snake is 1 inch long (26 mm) and 5/8 inch (15 mm) wide.

    Kris Kramer Designs

    Kris's home and studio are in Whitefish, Montana. Her medium is metal clay. Metal clay was invented in the 90s by Mitsubishi as a way to use silver from discarded electronics and more; thus, all of her pieces contain at least 40% silver from industrial waste.

    All pieces are 99.9% silver or Fine Silver or Sterling Silver at 96.2% silver. All jump rings, wires, and ear wires are either Sterling Silver (92.5%) or Argentium. Nothing contains nickel, to which some people have allergies.

    Each piece is made by hand, one-by-one. The process includes building and sculpting the piece in wet clay, drying the clay, sanding and drilling holes, firing the clay piece in a kiln at 1630 degrees for two hours which burns off the binder and water leaving only the silver, brass-brushing the piece, tumbling the piece in steel shot for two hours, oxidizing (a patina) the piece, fine finishing the piece with conventional silver-smithing tools, tumbling the piece in burnishing compound for one or more hours, and assembling with ear wires, O rings, or other findings.

    Kris is a certified Precious Metal Clay (PMC) instructor at PMC Connection and Rio-Rewards Certified by RioGrande. She used to teach PMC classes at a community college, at art centers across the country, and out of her studio. Now her teaching presence is solely online at I Love Silver.

    Care for her items is as simple as polishing the high points lightly with a polishing cloth. If you polish too hard or for too long, the black patina that gives the scene or piece character will be wiped away.
