Tamara Steinborn // Ophis Necklace Bronze
Hand carved wax cast 2” snake pendant on 20” fine chain.
Tamara Steinborn Jewellery is a hand carved collection of modern talismans and mythical treasures, evoking stories and meaning for those who wear it. Each piece is designed and made in Ottawa/Montreal using traditional metalsmithing techniques.
Inspired by the Valkyrie myth of Rota, "she who causes turmoil," Steinborn focuses on images that provoke and disquiet, but with a sense of beauty. Recurring themes include eyes that ward off evil, hands that lay protective spells and the moon in all of its beauty.
