tiny skull necklace / memento mori collection
Inspired by the Victorian tradition of 'memento mori' jewelry, these tiny skulls are a modern take on a meaningful sentiment which translates roughly to 'remember, you must die'. In the 16th and 17th centuries, it became fashionable to wear objects decorated with skulls, skeletons and coffins as a reminder of the fragility of human life. Wear this necklace to keep close someone you've loved and lost, or as a meaningful reminder to live in the moment.

A NOTE ABOUT HANDMADE: Your piece will look very much like the ones in the photo, however, please keep in mind the nature of handmade. Each tiny skull charm is transformed into metal by an artisan caster, then finished and polished by my two hands - meaning that there will be slight variation from one to the next. This means that the necklace I make for you will be uniquely yours.
