Snake Jewelry Is Always in Style

The Victorians loved snakes in jewelry, starting with Prince Albert's giving Vicky a snake ring (those crazy, kinky kids)!  Now they are ubiquitous, often looking like something on loan from Voldemort.  But this contemporary, beaded necklace is gorgeous! 
Gold Snake II by Claire Kahn at Patina Gallery,
Metalic and 24 karat gold plate over glass beads.  Is this subtle or freaky?
