Memento Mori Skull Talisman Set
The perfect amulets for strength and protection. These dainty Memento Mori skulls are created as a tribute to honor the historical artform of mourning jewelry; the Latin words Memento Mori translate to "we all must die”. A frequently misinterpreted tradition that is often considered to be a dark reminder of our immortal nature, while it is in fact more intended to commemorate and celebrate a life. These sentimental keepsakes help us remember that in the balance of all things, there is always light (life), just as there is dark (death). The beauty of this balance is reflected in each piece of the Memento Mori collection, using common themes such as skulls, flowers, and serpents, which endearingly represent eternal love.
The set includes three hand carved trumpet shell skulls and three hand carved African turquoise jasper skull beads. The shell carvings are 11mm and the turquoise jasper are 10mm. The turquoise jasper skulls have been drilled at the top and perfect for setting as earrings or a pendant.
