My Vertebrae necklace is a real favourite of mine. It's cast in solid bronze from a replica of a human spinal vertebra (to be more specific, the third cervical vertebra), found at the top of the spinal column. Apart from the small hole I've drilled into the top of the vertebra, this is exactly how the bone appears in it's natural form. Since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by the intricacies of the human body, and this bone is no exception.

Beautiful in its simplicity, and staggering in its complexity.

The Vertebra measures 1" high (not including the jump ring) and 1 1/2" wide. It hangs from a perfectly centred jump ring which gives the piece a great balance, and it's hung on a 24" gunmetal chain which compliments it perfectly.

Cast in solid bronze, every minute detail of the original bone is replicated. The vertebra is then polished and finished entirely by hand. A patina is applied to the piece to really bring out all the details in the bone, and give it a great depth, and finally a special process is applied to the piece to stop it from tarnishing.


Taking a line from my favourite film of all time, Raiders of the Lost Ark, perhaps a little too literally - "Show a little backbone will ya!"
