The Death's Head Moth Chatelaine Necklace is part tribute to a fascinating creature, and also a nod to a historical accessory. The Death's Head Moth itself has been referenced in literature (Dracula as well as the film version of Silence Of The Lambs) for its distinctive skull marking as well as its squeak; while the chatelaine has been worn since ancient Roman times as an accessory for the carrying of household tools, but it emerged in the 19th century as a kind of status symbol for women who controlled a house. Historically, chatelaines have carried any number of useful items such as ear cleaners, keys, tweezers, eye glasses... even toilet seats apparently!

Today I've reimagined the chatelaine in keeping with a Steampunk aesthetic, the moth references archaic superstition and the charms symbolise the decorative elements that replaced useful items on the chatelaine as the times changed with the industrial revolution and emerging women's rights.

The eight charms on each piece will vary subject to availability, and may not be exactly as pictured. Charms may include: wing, octopus, clock, gears and cogs, spiderweb, scissors, dragon fly, sword, key.

Dimensions: Moth is approximately 7cm/ 2.75" x 3cm/ 1.25", with charms is 5.5cm/ 2.1" long. Chain measures 51cm/ 20" long.

The chain is the perfect length for people with bigger necks and shoulders. If you'd like the chain shortened, please leave me a note and tell me how long you'd like it to be.

Frequently asked questions about FancyLadyIndustries

I make bumbags in three sizes - kids, small adult and large adult. Please read the description closely for the dimensions of the bag and straps. If a strap is too long for you, I can shorten it (but I can't make it longer!) please let me know your waist measurement in the check out notes.

The necklace chains are designed for people with larger necks and shoulders first and foremost. Please read the description for the chain length. Should you require a shorter chain, please let me know how long you require it in the checkout notes so I can shorten it for you.

I don't refund upon change of mind or if the incorrect sizing was purchased, I'm afraid.
Unfortunately, I can not refund the cost of lost or undelivered shipped items.

Tracked International Shipping is expensive from Australia and most customers prefer the most economical shipping method so items are not sent with tracking. If you require tracking and would like to pay for extra shipping, please message me and I can arrange an updated shipping total.
