Nahusha Hoops, World Serpents and Keepers of Secrets

The Nahusha Hoops are inspired by my ouroboros Anglo Saxon brooches. Designed in lightweight, work-hardened aluminium to be worn through tunnels or bare stretched piercings. The tumbled and hammered aluminium takes on a moon-glow. Perfect to wear if you don’t want to stretch your gauge further but still want a minimalist rustic statement earring; they look heavy but are actually light to wear. This abstracted hoop is inspired by the World Serpents known throughout world myth as a creator-destroyer and keeper of secrets. 

I make these hoops in 2 gauge sizes: large 4g (4.50 mm) and medium 6g (3.25mm). All hoops measure approximately 2″ in diameter as well as 12g or 2mm in a cold-forged bronze. The bronze I use is a lovely rose-gold colour.  Keep your eyes on the shop, as I will soon be rolling these out in pure sterling silver in a 12g.

You can open the hoops by gently pulling one end toward you and then sliding it back into place, like a jump ring.

The popularity of this open circle is found in many of my designs, including the pennanular brooch and worry ring as well as hidden away my logo! Known to the Gnostics as the Wise Serpent, the Ouroboros revealed the mysteries of the heavens, protecting the world-egg. This symbol can be traced back to an earlier Goddess, Nehushta, a parallel of the Hindu world-serpent Nahusha. The Norse called this the Nidhogg, the World Serpent eating away at the roots of the World Tree.  A wingless dragon, she took on a darker significance in the Middle Ages when female snakes were thought to swallow the male in order to reproduce.

Here’s what one satisfied customer had to say about these hoops:

“Perfect weight to them. Love the hammered texture. Easy to wear and goes with a lot of shit. Thank you again. Will be ordering new earrings soon” – Kali

Thank you to my gorgeous and inspiring IG community who have posted images of themselves wearing these hoops– noteably @ninarosewylie, @missmagissa, @misslunapoison and @dagger_dutchess Do you have a pair?  I would love to see them– send me a pic!

A new Logo for Feral Strumpet

Meet the new logo for Feral Strumpet, created by Alaura of Desnoir. After seeing the work she did for Black Moon Cosmetics, among other brands, I knew she was the woman for the job!  After giving Alaura some ideas she was able to create this design which is medieval, gothic and also based on some of my best selling designs, the Nahusha hoops and Pennanular brooches as well as the Worry Ring. She created the perfect design on the first version– I love it and feel it encapsulates the mysterious, delicate and beautiful world of Feral Strumpet that I have created.  Alaura was a joy to work with and I recommend her highly.
