20% -||||| MUSEUM INSPIRED SERIES: 'Victory over Death' a whimsical series of multicolored skulls reminding us of God's promise of Victory over Death when the New Adam (Jesus) brought redemption over the Old Adam. A little reminder, too of the rainbow of Genesis and Gods promise.

We love the fact that these were selling before they went on the internet. Wonderful to hold and a delight to look at.

Each skull is actually made from a stabilized howlite - turquoise powder that has been infused with a clear epoxy resin. This soft or "chalk" turquoise is infused under pressure, which permanently hardens the rock and deepens the color that is added. Howlite is white and takes color well. Aves are of a beautiful, dark brown wood.


||||| MEMENTO MORI ('Remember Thy Death': Inspired by antique rosaries and chaplets in European museums and books from the the late middle ages -15c up. Skulls on rosaries and chaplet were very popular during this time in history. Working with rare components does make a difference in the finished design. Crucifixes, rosary centers and religious medals cast from antiques in sterling and bronze along with hard to find antique beads (or those inspired by them) do make the difference. But most of all, it is in the way a designer chooses to put it all together. These old rosaries and chaplets from the 15c - 19c speak to the heart in a special way, regardless if they were put together by an artist or by a guild - or simply by someone who took what they had and strung it into a prayer chain. But the results are so beautiful that they are now resting in museums all over Europe


||||| ABOUT OUR MEDALS: All our crucifixes, rosary centers and religious medals are hand cast from antique and vintage pieces in sterling silver and solid bronze, then antiqued to restore original patina. For this rosary we have chosen the small face of Christ on the cross.

||||| VICTORY OVER DEATH: The symbolism of the skull on old crosses from the 18c represents Christ's victory over death. The skull is traditionally that of Adam who was believed buried on Golgatha. Christ is known as the ' New Adam'. Tradition has it that the blood of Christ flowed down the cross and on to the skull of Adam, redeeming mankind.
