Check out those Snakes!
Due to events in China over the past few thousand years, David Oscarson has made another incredibly complex pen. This pen features Snakes, Water, and the color Black. If you’re scratching your head, don’t let on– there are 1.35 billion people in the world who know exactly what the story is.
From Oscarson’s site:
The Black Water Snake Collection is a follow-up to the 2012 Black Water Dragon. Crafted from .925 Sterling Silver, this intricate design incorporates multiple levels of diamond-cut Guilloché engraving and a combination of Translucent and Opaque Hard Enamels. Translucent and Opaque Hard Enamels are repeatedly kiln-fired and filed by hand, resulting in the beautiful and enduring finish of this magnificent Collection piece.
The ancient Chinese symbol for Snake is inlaid in Opaque Black Hard Enamel on the top dome of the of the pen cap and the ancient Chinese symbol for Water (which resembles a flowing river) repeats horizontally in high relief around the top of the cap and bottom of the barrel; the modern Chinese symbol for Water appears in Opaque Black Hard Enamel inlaid into the bottom end of the pen barrel.
The Black Water Snake will be produced in three primary color variations:
Translucent Grey and Opaque Black ,Translucent Azure Blue and Opaque Black, and Translucent Moss Black and Opaque Black in Gold Vermeil… Each will be limited to production of 88 pieces.
If it sounds like there’s a lot going on there, wait til you have a look:
