This one of a kind Neo Victorian wonder was made using a recycled Victorian pocket case that measures 2 inches in diameter. The case is made of rose gold fill and has worn away beautifully in areas due to age and use. Within this case I mounted a skull of a mouse atop a set of spectacular Cicada wings. I suspended the case from an 18 inch strand of the most beautiful and rare vintage bookchain. The chain is 2 toned with silver toned jump rings and gold toned bookchain links embossed with an Etruscan Revival type design. The links have a lovely patina due to age. This necklace is *not* encased in resin. Air flows free under the glass and throughout the inside of the pocket watch case, the same as in shadow boxes.

GORGEOUS!!!




The creation of my Ossuary Relics was inspired by the Sedlec Ossuary, or Bone Church, outside of Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic. There is a long history of how this tiny little church was a favorite burial place of the Czech between 1200s and the 1700s. Countless remains were transported there during various plagues and wars and it began to get rather crowded. The most interesting part of the story happens in 1870 when the church employed a local woodcarver to sort through and organize the remains. This inspired gentleman, by the name of František Rint, not only did his job but decided to include the interior design of the church as part of his task. He created 4 enormous bell shaped mounds of bones in each corner of the church, each one with a massive crown hanging above signifying that all men are are considered equal at the gates of Heaven. He also crafted a massive chandelier in the center of the room that contains every bone in the human body, a Schwarzenberg coat of arms, garlands of skulls and crossbones that cover the ceiling and walls, a few obelisks, and even signed his work on the wall near the door in bones. His work is quite fantastic.
