This sterling silver skull pendant with mushrooms is a reminder that life is fleeting. In this macabre scene two mushrooms sprout inside a human skull, transforming dead matter into fertile soil making way for something new. It is a story of loss, transformation, and hope.

Centuries ago beautiful jewelry was created to remind people of their own mortality. Referred to as Memento Mori - meaning "remember you must die" - this jewelry served as a warning to prepare ourselves for whatever other realm awaits us. Only jewelry can convey a harsh reality in such elegant form.

Includes an 18 inch, rhodium-plated sterling silver 1.0mm snake chain with lobster clasp.

Rhodium plated silver is sterling silver coated in rhodium to make it whiter and brighter. Silver is a softer metal, so rhodium protects it from scratches or wear. Solid silver is too soft to be fashioned into jewelry, so it contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals like copper, nickel, or a combination of the two. The traces of copper and nickel in sterling silver cause tarnishing. Adding rhodium plating prevents this from happening.

Pendant measures 33 x 17mm.
