Nine fish vertebrae are perfectly preserved and attached to a pair of delicate (but very sturdy) mixed metal chains and a bit of salvaged vintage wooden rosary beads (black painted wood, salvaged from a rosary that was damaged beyond repair). Simpler than most Savage Salvage designs, I decided to keep this one light and basic to highlight the amazing natural beauty of these delicate little bones. They are just incredible!

Closes with an oxidized brass lobster claw clasp. A tiny antique brass Catholic medallion from Lourdes dangles at the clasp. It was attached to the rosary and I felt like they needed to stay together. The medal has gorgeous patina, the surface is worn nearly smooth with bits of blue and green discoloration from decades of prayer. it is so so tiny, smaller than a dime. So delicate and a lovely contrast to the macabre fish bones. Memento Mori.

Measures 8", currently best fit for a larger sized woman's wrist. Length can be adjusted for free. Just leave the desired length in the note to seller box at checkout and I'll make sure it gets customized before it ships.

Thanks for shopping handmade!
