Religious Icon

My new collection is inspired by a chapter from one of my favourite books by Neil Gaiman, “The Graveyard Book”.
There’s a particular chapter called Danse Macabre that describes a scene in which the spirits are leaving their graveyard to dance with the living. It represents the struggle to leave the people you love, the sorrow of being left behind, all that which is unfinished and the magical chance to meet again. Through dance, we pass through sorrow and grief, in search of what is needed to move on in life, or into the great beyond.

There are many religious icons present in artworks depicting the Danse Macabre which is why I have added this cross pendant to the collection. It’s set with a naturally included, faceted garnet that displays a gorgeous deep red and pink.

Made from sterling silver, the cross measures 31mm wide by 35mm high, it comes on an 18″/45cm sterling chain and is ready to ship.
