Derived from two ancient Greek words, “oura” meaning ‘the tail’, and “boros”, meaning “eating”, this sterling silver bangle is named Ouroboros after the Great World Serpent.
This unisex, handcrafted bangle has several meanings interwoven into it, serving as daily reminders for the wearer.
It is the Alchemists symbol of Infinity. The snake wrapped represents the eternal, cyclical nature of the Universe- of disintegration and re-integration and the eternal return, reminding the wearer to be present in each moment, by knowing that all difficulties are temporary and will past, and that all that is considered to be separate is infact one.
The tail of the snake represents the past and the act of devouring it signifies becoming whole with our past moving those experiences into an inner domain of reality.
The serpent has been created without eyes or ears to remind us that all answers are contained within ourselves and not in the physical realm that relies upon the senses.
The wearer of this bracelet is granted the power of engaging with life with the courage born from knowing of the absolute truth- the infinite nature of our spirit; that we have existed before there was a beginning and our essence will exist eternally.
