Quetzalcoatl by sodacrush Quetzalcoatl by sodacrush
Quetzalcˇatl, the Feathered Serpent, is one of the major deities of the ancient Mexican pantheon. Closely related to the gods of wind, rain and the dawn, Quetzalcˇatl is also the god of craftsmen and artisans :D

A blue stone (Bermuda Blue Swarovski) was chosen to represent the water elements of Quetzalcˇatl, and two snarling feathered serpents curl outwards from the stone, their wings fanning out to the tips of this pendant. Silver scrollwork and an intricate key bit complete this key. The perfect combination of mysterious blue and intricate silver, Quetzalcˇatl looks like the key to a long-lost door hiding mounds of forgotten Atzec treasure...

Please read the FAQ on my profile before asking questions, thank you! :D

This is so beautiful... I am rather depressed now, an ornament of such beauty slipped through my very palms, I very much wish I could have bought such a piece of beauty.... I admire Quetzalcoatl very much for being the God of artisans, not to mention ornamental and silver jewelry based off keys and wings, also the very "show stopping" and astonishing blue stone adorning the middle... Whoever got this one, I must say, I am extremely envious of... Amazing job, once again, and hopefully you may make another one, but hopefully this one in specifics, that I may someday or not have in my grasp this time... ^^

Mind giving me the Estimated Price? For my birthday is on Thursday, and I want a symbol of my admired Quetzalcoatl, for he is the God of artists and even rumored to be the God of love as well.
