Deaths reminder necklace
“The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” - John Muir
I want this pendant to serve as a reminder to the wearer than all things must die, it is the natural way of this world. Even nature finds little ways to remind us. The Deaths head hawk moth is a symbol for death in many cultures and communities.
However, even in death there is beauty to be found.
The crystals on the moth are natural crystal quartz points. Each pendant will be slightly different with fewer or more quartz points. I will make the pendant to the specifications but once it leaves my hands it is yours. If a crystal breaks it is not my fault- this necklace is fragile so please treat it kindly, do not get it wet, and when not wearing pack it with care.
-A note about oxidization, It is kind of like tie-dye, each oxidization is a little different from the other! It is a chemical reaction on the silver. Oxidization will fade over time and pieces can always be re-oxidized!
The pendant was designed by me, inspired by the forest. Sculpted by Hiroyuki Shambles in Japan, and cast by a local casting company here in Los Angeles, CA.
The pendant is oxidized sterling silver.
Specifically designed to be unisex.
Sterling silver has very minimal upkeep! Just wet with water and wipe with a soft cloth.
