Snake and Apple by Thomas Sabo; symbols of Eve in the garden of Eden. Paleontologists say Mitochondrial Eve is the mother of the human race. We now know the snake stands for knowledge or kundalini, not evil. The apple was seen as a symbol of sin in the old testament but its meaning changed when Christ was portrayed holding an apple in the New Testament, then becoming an emblem of man's redemption. So not sin & evil, rather knowledge and awakening. Eve our original Goddess is redeemed!
