Fantastic item, quickly shipped. Perfect size, not too large but not too small, with intricate detail. This is the second necklace I've gotten and they are gorgeous! My husband really enjoys this and I am looking forward to hopefully getting a hyena skull as well.
This shop showcases my collection of tiny representations of animal skulls cast in metal.
This shop was born out of a desire to make little representations of things that occur in the natural world, in particular little metal animal skulls. For many of my pieces, I first make a miniature version of the skull in plastic. Making that original takes a long time, it can take forever to get teeth right! From the miniature original I cast a rubber mold, into which I cast pewter. After some finishing and polishing, I end up with a shiny little version of the real thing! - Pete Rhodes, The Pewter Wolf
I've always loved using my hands and tools to create high quality items, and for the past ten years plus, making jewelry has been a way to do that. I started casting pieces in pewter about four years ago.
Sarber Jewellers Ltd
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Sarber Jewellers is a family run business in downtown Vancouver, BC Canada. They specialize in the lost wax casting process, and provide services to the local jewelry trade.
Inside you will find realistic animal skull jewelry cast in pewter and hand finished for maximum depth and luster.
I offer realistic animal skull jewelry cast in pewter, bronze and sterling silver - hand finished for maximum depth and luster. My designs include raven skulls, wolf skulls, hummingbird skulls, fox skulls, dinosaur skulls, rat skulls, big cat skulls, antlers, vulture skulls, hyena skulls, a day of the dead skull, bird talons and even a tasmanian devil skull.
I make all the pieces, but mother nature is the true designer, so my task is simple - making a true likeness of the interesting, organic and beautiful forms that she has created.
Each piece of jewelry will last for years with minimal care. The pewter I use is jewelry quality(lead and nickel free) and will retain its luster well. Over the years it will naturally develop a patina which may be left on or rubbed off with a simple vinegar/flour/salt mixture.
As I personally cast and hand finish these pieces, please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photos.
I ship worldwide from Vancouver, Canada using Canada Post. Items are sent by the most economic shipping method possible, however if you would like a faster delivery time with package tracking please indicate this with your order - for details regarding shipping see the Shipping heading below.
