Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skull Pendant...
This skull pendant is made out of fine silver precious metal clay and is 99.9% pure silver.
It measures 7/8" long and just over 5/8" wide at the widest point.
The skull features a 2.5mm round simulated ruby stone flush set into a leaf and flower pattern on the skull's forehead. The simulated ruby stone (made in a lab) is a beautiful pinkish red color. The skull is slightly textured and has cut-out, heart-shaped eyes.
To make these skulls, I cut the shapes out of the precious metal clay, scribe in the face patterns by hand, cut out the eyes, add stones and other details/ textures, and fire them in my kiln where they become metal pendants to wear and enjoy. Each one has its own personality, and no two will be exactly alike. The recessed areas have been tarnished to accentuate the design and show off the face pattern.
The skull pendant comes with a lightly tarnished 18" sterling silver cable chain in a red gift box made of recycled materials.
