Memento Mori Sterling Silver Skull Earrings

 

‘Remember you must die’

 

The idea of jewellery made to commemorate the inevitability of death has always fascinated me and was the inspiration for these studs. The naïve skull carvings of medieval jewellery informing the feel of the design.

 

I hand carved my very own tiny skull in wax before a traditional metalsmithing process known as lost wax casting is used to make a perfect replica of it in precious metal. I love how the hand fabricated nature used to create the skulls really adds an authentic, primitive feel. I solder on ear pins to turn these little castings into a pair of studs.

 

Have you seen the matching ring? Why not ask about having rubies or diamonds set in to the eyes for that extra opulent touch? This design can also be forged in gold.

 

Features:

  • Oxidised finish to give an aged, antiqued feel.
  • Skulls measures around 7mm x 4mm.
  • Stud style fittings with matching scroll backs.
  • Customisable with gem set eyes.

 

Materials: 925 sterling silver.

 

– Every piece comes lovingly packaged in my signature eco gift boxes.

– My jewellery is not mass produced, but forged and finished by hand in precious metals using a variety of traditional metal-smithing techniques.

– Each piece will have some minor variations due to the nature in which they are made, adding to their uniqueness.

– Expect items to take around 2 weeks to ship unless otherwise stated in the delivery details. All orders are posted tracked and signed for.
