    Love it! I’m intrigued by this creative combination….forest green, burnt red and golden yellow. A good match for the brass & patina brass.

    Mellow Mellie says:

    Thank you! Green for the color of a snake (envy of good) and a play on the russian serpentine; citrine for the lion’s golden mane and; bold red for the ferocity of the lion (and a play on the red snake skin jasper).

    The serpent pendant and basket bead because snake charmers keep the snakes in baskets. Also, the African sun coin bead is, of course, for the lion’s homeland.

    I was feeling a “evil vs. good” theme when I saw the Vintaj pendant.

    Also, I’ve made rosaries out of russian serpentine. It is a beautiful stone with a great feel. Also, a symbolic way to say, “Not Today Satan!!!” (Tee-hee)

    Very interesting! Your description makes your pick come alive. I never heard of a couple of the gems you chose … cuprite and chalcopyrite.
