The BASMU brooch
The great serpent of Mesopotamia was a mythical creature associated with birth, death, destruction and eternal life. Ancient Mesopotamians believed snakes were immortal because they could shed their skin and appear forever youthful. Throughout time and across cultures, snakes have appeared as universal symbols of immortality and creativity. Because of their ability to shed their skin, they speak to us of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing.
As with most all of our jewelry, it is in a timeless and elegant design that is perfect for both everyday wear and parties.
