Siamese Skulls

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.

This siamese skull necklace represents the skeletons coming forth to play their musical instruments, dance with the living and return once the crow sings its song at sunrise. There are many religious icons present in artworks depicting the Danse Macabre which is why I have added the tiny cross set amongst a faceted garnet.

Made from sterling silver, the pendant it 37mm wide and 32mm high, the entire necklace measure 17.5″ long and is ready to ship.
