My Bird Skull necklace. I’ve always loved bird’s skulls, particularly the raven skull, and adding the tribal carving to this bronze skull worked really well I think. I wanted this design to harmonize with the skull as well in a way that looks almost natural, and made sure that the symmetry was nicely balanced with the shape of the skull too. I took a few liberties with the eye socket detailing, but all in the name of art! There’s a jump ring incorporated into the design on the back of the skull and it hangs really nicely.

The raven skull measures 36mm from the back of the skull to the tip of its beak (not including the jump ring), and is 15mm at its widest point.

Like all Lost Apostle jewelry, the raven skull is hand carved, cast in high quality jewelers bronze, and hand finished. This piece was given a patina to bring out all the details in the skull and the tribal design, and then it then gets a really good polish to bring out the lovely colour and warmth of the bronze. Finally, as with all our jewelry, we gave this piece a special treatment to protect it from tarnishing – unlike untreated bronze this skull will keep its polish and shine for years.

The pendant is hung on approximately 80cm of the finest and strongest Spanish brown leather. We spent a couple of years in Barcelona and found a fantastic shop there selling its own traditional leathers – something that their family has been doing, in the same shop, for the past 200 years. When they said this leather was their finest, we believed them. The leather will age beautifully and as with all the finest leathers, the more you wear it, the softer it will become.

I’ve also included a photo of the Lost Apostle bronze clasp that comes with the leather. I designed this clasp myself, and it allows you to not only adjust the necklace to whatever length you want to wear it, but also saves having to tie a messy great knot in the leather itself.

Here's what one very lovely customer had to say about this piece -

"I just got my raven today and it is absolutely gorgeous. It took my breath away; it was so beautiful. It's delicate and strong--amazing...mythical. It is a piece of art that I'm going to treasure".
