Inspired by one of my favourite paintings by Pieter Claesz. A still life painting piece reminding us that life is fleeting.
Made from solid fine and sterling silver and jewellers brass, I have handmade all components in this piece, bar the solid cast golden skull. Leaf carved Tourmaline gemstones in 3 shades of Ruby pink form the flowers, and they sit in a scrolled 2D vase atop a book on a tabletop. A skull sits next to them. The face measures 40mm in diameter and it hangs on an attached 16" sterling chain. Made to sit just below the collar bones to maximise it's impact and generate the most comments. Definitely a labour of love for me to make, a statement and a collector piece.
Hallmarked with my logo and purity stamps.
All of my jewellery are One of a Kind statement pieces. All are handcrafted entirely by hand, in my studio in the Queensland Tropics.
