Flower Skull Necklace
This necklace hosts a pure silver pendant that features a rustic skull surrounded by flowers and has the phases of the moon above its head. One the one hand you can see this necklace as a cool, trendy piece that would look great layered with other necklaces. Or, you could dive into the hidden meaning, seeing the phases of the moon as the passing of the years, and how we are all destined to end up as this festooned skull, eventually. Anyhoo! Either way, this necklace will make quite a statement.
The item pictured is not the exact piece you will receive as I make these to order. Since they are special orders made especially for you, they will take roughly a week to ship.
Please choose the length of your chain and whether you would like your chain shiny or oxidized (darkened).
Process - The medium I use to create this charm is known as Metal Clay and it consists of recycled silver from photo negatives mixed in an organic binder. In this case I used a wax stamp to make an impression on the clay, then I fire in a kiln where the binder burns away and the piece that remains is .999 pure silver. I then oxidize (darken) it in order to bring out the texture, and polish the high points to create a nice contrast.
Your purchase will arrive in a 100% recycled box w/ poly-fill wadding, ready to give as a gift for others or yourself ;-)
