Steampunk Skull Necklace with Skull of a Parakeet Holding a Pearl in its Beak with Jadeite Fragments and a Jadeite Rosary Chain Housed in a TINY Victorian Ladies Gold Filled Pocket Watch by Nouveau Motley.

This one of a kind Neo Victorian wonder was made using an upcycled Victorian pocket case that measures 1.25 inches in diameter. The case is made of rose gold fill and is suspended from an 18 inch rosary chain with beads of the most beautiful pale opalescent green glass. These beads are almost the exact same delicate color of Depression Era Jadeite. I have few pieces of original Jadeite and earlier this year a mishap happened where my entire kitchen cabinet fell off the wall, breaking a few pieces. Not to let them go to waste I made frit (ground glass) out of a few fragments and used some in the composition of this piece.

Within this case I mounted a TINY skull of a parakeet that is surrounded by original Jadeite frit that matches perfectly with the beads of the rosary chain. The skull has been altered in order to be set on on angle creating a much more interesting view and has a pearl grasped in it's beak. The pendant is *not* encased in resin. Air flows free under the glass and throughout the inside of the pocket watch case, the same as in shadow boxes.

This is truly a stunning piece!

The creation of my Ossuary Relics was inspired by the Sedlec Ossuary, or Bone Church, outside of Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic. There is a long history of how this tiny little church was a favorite burial place of the Czech between 1200s and the 1700s. Countless remains were transported there during various plagues and wars and it began to get rather crowded. The most interesting part of the story happens in 1870 when the church employed a local woodcarver to sort through and organize the remains. This inspired gentleman, by the name of František Rint, not only did his job but decided to include the interior design of the church as part of his task. He created 4 enormous bell shaped mounds of bones in each corner of the church, each one with a massive crown hanging above signifying that all men are are considered equal at the gates of Heaven. He also crafted a massive chandelier in the center of the room that contains every bone in the human body, a Schwarzenberg coat of arms, garlands of skulls and crossbones that cover the ceiling and walls, a few obelisks, and even signed his work on the wall near the door in bones. His work is quite fantastic.
