Memento Mori – remember your mortality. This phrase carries different meanings for different people, and I often witness heated debate among antique jewellery experts about what it means. For me, ‘memento mori’ means that I should remember that each day I am alive and I need to make the most of every opportunity. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring and the time and life we have is precious. Not everything in life can be controlled, and it is a fine balancing act to work out when to take charge, and when to let go.
An exquisite antique skull taken from a doctor’s watch chain* has been moulded and cast in solid silver and now features in this ring design. The skull is quite lovely and the perfect size for this adornment. I have created the ring myself by forging a hammered silver band, then soldering the skull onto it. I will produce to your chosen size. This ring is ideal for layering and works just fine on its own.
Production time – 1-2 weeks.
* I acknowledge Lizbeth Clay from Rustic Gypsy Adornments on Etsy for sourcing the original antique skull from which my copy has been made.
