The Side Serpent is solid sterling silver and will accommodate small-diameter necklaces. This pendant of Esculapius attaches to the necklace via a hole through the top of the staff. It was with this pendant that I started to branch out and explore different designs of a pattern that has lasted for thousands of years. These "new" designs are found in Topped Serpent and Looped Serpent pendants as well. I pondered over the naming of these varieous pieces for several months and decided to go with descriptive names that were easy to remember.
