A silver snake bracelet from the Island of Java, Indonesia, expands so that it can be worn on the wrist or on a slender upper arm in Cleopatra fashion. The size is adjusted by slipping the snake head through the curled tail. Snakes, a form frequently used in hand crafted Indonesian jewelry, often are given a human-like expression. In this case, the snake has a furrowed brow. As photographed, the diameter is 2-1/2" (6 cm). Opened so the snake head just touches the outer curve of the tail, the diameter is just over 3" (8 cm).
