Day of Dead skull, large, in bronze
Made by The Lost Apostle.
This from the designer:
"This bronze Sugar Skull necklace is the larger of the two that I have here on Etsy, and is covered in great little details all the way down to the tiny skulls in its eyes. On the back of the skull we carved a beautiful rose, and there’s a couple of hearts and other flowers on there too. Even the back of his jaw doesn’t escape the Day of the Dead treatment – this guy is fiesta’d up to the eyeballs and back again. The hole drilled through the skull is incorporated into the design too, surrounded by little petals of its own.
This one’s a heavier one, measuring 26mm high by 18mm wide. It’s also 20mm deep and made of solid bronze – the weight is fantastic.
As with all or bronzes, this skull is hand carved and cast in the highest quality jewelers bronze. After finishing the piece by hand, we then apply a patina to the skull which, after polishing, really brings out all those little details. Finally, the skull is protected against tarnishing – this Day of the Dead skull will stay beaming for a long time to come.
This skull is hung on a 24" gold plated curb chain and by golly does it rock it."
