This work is inspired by the Ouroboros, the Greek emblem, which is a circle depicting a snake, or less commonly a dragon, eating its tail. Its meaning lies in wholeness and infinity. These chains follow along with the notion of infinity and unity by its use of linked rings and when the chain ends meet, it forms a continuous and infinite chain. The jewellery I have created consists of two main structures; the chain which forms the inner structure of the snake, and the scale maille which creates the illusion and gives the structure body and mass.
