If you've played the recent reboot of Tomb Raider, you've probably noticed Lara Croft wears a jade pendant around her neck, which seems to be a stylised serpent of some kind. It's quite pretty in its simplicity, and with Lara being a popular choice of character amongst cosplayers, it's no surprise that many people have attempted to replicate the charm.
