Narcissus - Lapis Lazuli and Skunk Skull Charivari Locket
$650.00 Sold out
Inspired by the traditional Bavarian hunting relics of yore, this fierce statement piece was created as a protective totem for the wearer.
Intensely vibrant lapis lazuli cabs adorn the eyes and nasal cavity, and the entire setting has been hand-fabricated from solid sterling silver.
The setting has been hinged at the jaw, allowing the mouth to open 180 degrees, and reveal a sterling silver tooth, and an ornamental plate where the tongue would be.
The teeth have sterling bands that allow the jaws to snap shut and lock closed during wear.
The entire sterling setting has been ornamented with silver scrollwork, and sterling grain. A large ornamental bail allows for free-swinging movement, and has been riveted to the top of the locket pendant.
The back features hand-cut and chiselled sterling wings, and has been stamped with a skull, and .925 STERLING along with my maker's mark MF.
Truly a one-of-a-kind statement piece!
Entire pendant measures 2.5 inches long including the bail, and hangs on a 24 inch long sterling silver 5.3 mm thick long-and-short style chain with lobster clasp and my signature star charm.

As with all handmade and one-of-a-kind jewelry, utmost care should be taken to keep jewelry clean and dry. Never wear your pieces while bathing, swimming, or washing dishes to avoid having them submerged in water. Bones and stones are porous and susceptible to become weak when they get wet. Metals can tarnish and lose their patinas more quickly if they get wet or washed with chemicals frequently. Also, please remove your pieces before any strenuous activities as they are fragile and parts could be knocked loose or fall out. Treat your jewelry like the unique piece of art that it is and it will remain in good condition for ages.
