Temptation Snake Ear Wrap
Genuine, fine pewter Temptation Snake Ear Wrap by Alchemy Gothic is solid and well made - skip the cheap Chinese knock offs and only buy the real Temptation Snake earring.
The serpent of Eden twists through and around the beguiled wearer’s ear. Inspired by the tale of Eve in the Garden Of Eden.
Unique piece by Alchemy Gothic in fine English pewter with surgical steel post - cannot really call it an ear ring it's more like an ear wrap as it is part ear cuff, part pierced ear ring. Post is a standard post with snake tail cap - no special piercing required.
Easiest way to put this unique earring on is to put the post thru your ear lobe and affix the back loosely. Then swing the snake head up and over the top of your ear hooking it in place as shown in the photo. If it is too small and the head will not swing over or bends your upper ear down, remove it and follow the existing bends to gently straighten it a bit. If too large and it will not stay over your ear, remove and follow the existing bends to gently fold the snake down lower. Try on again and repeat as needed. Once it fits, snug up the back and keep it sized as is - repeated bending can cause it to break.
Designed to be worn on the left ear as shown, with a little gentle bending (stretch the body a bit straighter), it can be worn on the right ear.

|Pewter||Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. All our pewter pieces are lead and nickel free. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.|
|Surgical Steel||Surgical steel or surgical stainless steel is a specific type of stainless steel, used in medical and jewelry applications, made out of several components: chromium, nickel (or titanium) and molybdenum. It is easy to clean and sterilize, strong, and corrosion-resistant. It is often used for pierced jewelry posts and wires as it does not cause allergic reactions other metals might in some individuals.|
