Halo of Bones Silver Pendant - Petrified Palm Root
Handcrafted pendant featuring a halo of cat bones cast in solid sterling silver around a beautiful petrified Palm root stone
This pendant have been on my bench for years, waiting for its final version. I’ll probably be able to make a handful of them.
It’s the first piece of The Ossuary Collection
It’s quite heavy and bold, not for the faint of heart.
I've collected bones and other natural treasures for as long as I can remember, they're mostly gifts, finds or byproducts of regulated and sustainable trapping. I do not promote animal cruelty, I don't see them as trophies, but mostly as a beautiful way to promote exploration and education of the natural world.
This cat skeleton was gifted to me by one of my dearest friend. He found it after a long winter in the back of a building in the city. The cause of death in unknown but probably natural. I'm honoured to be able to give this little creature a second life.
Wear it as a talisman
The whole pendant is about 85mm tall x 55mm large
Paired with a sterling diamond cut chain , 16 or 18 inches , let me know if you would like a different length
Oxidized to give a beautiful black color and then roughly polished to give more character.
Made with love, and good intent !
