This Sugar Skull bronze skull is the larger of the two that I have here on Etsy, and, well, you know what? Never mind that, here's what one customer had to say -

"Completely rad. The craftsmanship is amazing and it got here quick! Buy from this Cadillac of humanity!"

I'm not one to blow my own trumpet but "Cadillac of humanity"? Man, if I had a dog I'd be wagging it. No, that's not right. If I had a tail I'd be dogging it. Worse. Whatever, there's a lot of love in this room right now.

This beauty is covered in great little details all the way down to the tiny skulls in its eyes. On the back of the solid bronze skull we carved a beautiful rose, and there’s a couple of hearts and other flowers on there too. Even the back of his jaw doesn’t escape the Day of the Dead treatment – this guy is fiesta’d up to the eyeballs and back again. The hole drilled through the skull is incorporated into the design too, surrounded by little petals of its own.

This one’s a heavier one, measuring 26mm high by 18mm wide. It’s also 20mm deep and made of solid bronze – the weight is fantastic.

As with all or jewelry, this skull is hand carved and cast in the highest quality jewelers bronze. After finishing the piece by hand, we then apply a patina to the skull which, after polishing, really brings out all those little details. Finally, the skull is protected against tarnishing – this Day of the Dead skull will stay beaming for a long time to come.

The skull is hung on approximately 80cm of the finest and strongest Spanish brown leather. My wife and I lived in Barcelona for a few years and found a fantastic little artisan shop that had been making and selling their own leathers in the same spot, by the same family, for nearly 200 years. When they said this leather was their finest, we figured they knew what they were talking about. The leather will age beautifully and as with all the finest leathers, the more you wear it, the softer it will get.

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.


★ I also make this Day of the Dead skull with an antique silver finish -
