Memento Mori - A reminder of death, used historically to promote reflection on mortality.

I feel that reflecting on my own mortality helps me to be more present in life…to enjoy each beautiful moment of this beautiful life I’ve been given.

I handcrafted the pendant in sterling silver. Starting with a rough drawing, I used a jewelers saw to reveal the skull shape before fusing to the hefty silver back plate. Hammers and chasing tools were used to create texture on the skull and pattern around it. I carefully selected a lovely labradorite to finish off the piece. Stone has nice clarity and flashes blue to bluish-green with undertones of red in the right light.

Sturdy, sterling silver cable chain measures 19” long with extra loop at 18” for two length options. Fastens with 9mm lobster clasp.
