Ouroboros Designs

Hand made artisan jewelry using precious metals and natural gemstones. Pieces are generally made to order and may be customized with choices of sterling silver, gold, and different gemstones upon request.

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. It often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end.

Ouroboros Designs is hand made in Southern California and is heavily influenced by mythology and ancient symbols. It combines natural gemstones with oxidized hand finishes that give a feeling of something beautiful you may have just dug out of the ground! Many pieces are one-of-a-kind and others are limited production. We gladly take custom orders as well. Ouroboros Designs are easy everyday pieces that look great with everything from a rock tee and jeans to a flouncy dress.

Ouroboros Designs recently added a fashion collection that allows us to play and experiment with new materials and is super inspired by whimsy, fantasy, and fun!

Turquoise Ouroboros Stone NecklaceTHE POWER OF TURQUOISE: Turquoise is one of the official birthstones for the month of December, and is heralded as the stone of communication. It encourages enthusiasm, thus inspiring new projects and bringing to light undiscovered artistic abilities. Turquoise also provides understanding and encourages attention to detail while attracting prosperity and success. The sprawling lines of coppery matrix provide a large amount of energy to its wearer. This may be one reason why the stone has long been prized as a powerful talisman with healing properties. It is believed that turquoise can help balance the blue throat chakra, enhancing the ability to communicate while increasing resistance to viruses, helping to relieve sore throats and allergies.
