Did you know that this year is the year of the snake? The sixth sign of the Chinese zodiac is the most enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of all the animal signs. 2013, specifically, is the year of the water snake, which apparently bodes well for finances.

So, with extra money flowing into our bank accounts, we have more reason to go shopping. Why not honour the animal that is helping to make it happen with a purchase from local designerJenny Bird? In particular, we love this serpent ring from her new collection for the way it elegantly coils around the finger.
