June Cream - The Death-Darting Eye of the Cockatrice
Artist: June Cream, New Mexico
Materials: sterling silver, black spinel
Dimensions: 22 x 16 x 23 mm
Artist Statement: The Cockatrice, a mythical monster born of cock and serpent who can turn you to stone with a single glance. A terrifying creature whose putrid breath and toxic venom can kill. But each beast has its weakness. The crow of a rooster or cluck of a chicken can scare it into submission, and a mirror held to its face will surely destroy him. This ring was hand carved in sterling silver and set with a border of black spinel. Wear this cockatrice as a reminder that even our most evil enemies can be defeated.
