Memento Mori necklace with green ceramic pendant, brass chain, with earrings

Item Description

This memento mori necklace features an eclectic collection of beads, antiqued brass chain, and matching earrings. The glaze of the ceramic pendant is a lovely blueish-green color.

The necklace measures 19 1/4" (50 cm) long. The memento mori pendant is a large ceramic piece with an hourglass design from artist Diane Hawkey that measures 1 5/8" (41 mm) across. I've accented it with lots of wonderful little treasures, including fossilized wood beads, ocean jasper, amazonite, glass Czech beads made with vintage glass, a vintage Czech bead, sage amethyst, and fossilized coral.

The earrings measure 1 1/4" long (31 mm) including the hook. The earring wires, headpins, beadcaps, and large jump rings are made of antiqued brass. The beads are made of fossil coral.

Memento mori designs have been worn for many centuries. They are visual reminders that man is mortal and that our time on earth is short - enjoy every moment that we have.
