Day of Dead skull in sterling silver
Made by The Lost Apostle.
One of my favorites! This sterling silver skull comes on a white bronze chain.
From the designer:
"My Day of the Dead necklace. Right down to the tiny skulls in its eyes, this skull is decorated up to, well, the eyeballs. As with a lot of our bronzes, we really wanted all this detailing to jump out and, and so once the piece is cast and hand-finished we apply a patina to darken all the recesses. The surface patina is then removed during the polishing process and this really makes all those roses, swirls and hearts stand out. Our small Day of the Dead skull was a real joint-effort between me and my wife, I took care of the skull part and she did all the detailing.
The skull measures 22mm high and about 14mm wide.
Hand carved, cast in high quality bronze, hand-finished, patinated and then polished to a mirror shine. Once finished, the piece is protected against tarnishing – this is one sugar skull that won’t need looking after…"
