Reptiles are the inspiration for many of our jewelry designs. Stylish and sensuous, the snake has been a jewelry motif throughout the ages. Snake imagery is prevalent in every culture, in literature and in the arts. In 2017 Alisha and I traveled to Bali, Flores and Komodo Islands where the Naga, a serpent deity in both Hindu and Buddhist mythology is a common motif in the many temple carvings. On remote Komodo Island we came face to face with the majestic Komodo Dragon.
