Serpents and dragons are often depicted in animal jewelry form. The symbolism is not quite as happy–go–lucky as that of the butterflies and dragonflies. These creatures are tied to darker paths; mystery, fantasy, and the occult are common themes that pop up when reading about them. In some cultures, these animals are strongly associated with luck, good fortune, wisdom, strength, and secrets. The mystical nature is very attractive to a lot of dragon and serpent lovers. They also tend to look fabulous in jewelry, and serpents naturally lend themselves to rings, armbands, bracelets, necklaces, etc. I like them a lot, and they remind me of things that are scary in life but can be beautiful when looked at in a different way.
