This sterling silver skull and mushroom charm necklace is a reminder that life is fleeting. In this macabre scene 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 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.
Comes on a simple sterling silver 18" cable chain with spring ring clasp.
All of our jewelry comes boxed and ribboned – perfect for gifting and keeping!
