So all the fash blogs are on about this:
“…The ‘Protector Collection’ has been meticulously created with Asprey by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to benefit a charity close to their hearts. The limited collection of fine jewels and silver objects was inspired by Angelina’s reflection on the snake as an iconic guardian, a cultural symbol of family protection. All net proceeds will be donated to the Education Partnership For Children of Conflict (EPCC).
The individual pieces in The Protector Collection are limited editions, handcrafted at the Asprey London flagship store, 167 New Bond Street. Each silver piece carries the 5 quality hallmarks applied by the London Assay Office…”
I LOVE Snakes even though i don’t usually wear jewellery and I checked this out: Price On Application. But fab cause, yes?
What I REALLY LOVE about this is the name of the collection: The Protector is like a really ancient name for Lilith, the original She-Devil and ye olde Serpent Snake-Goddess, Temptress etc. She protects Pagan knowledge that the Christians and others have tried to destroy forever. Angelina Jolie is Pluto-Moon woman par excellence and she has Venus in Cancer Rising- v.apt energy for a highly emotive & seductive aspiring global nurturer I think.
But still, the very name The Protector – regardless of the design or the greatness of the cause (clearly amazing and humbling) in conjunction with a Snake motif is cheeky…Especially in certain parts of the world (like Mesopotamia and Persia) where they banished deities such as Ishtar and her male God-lover Tammuz (think Venus and Mars for easier reference) in favour of more monolithic, patriarchal Gods.
