Memento Mori is a Latin phrase meaning “remember you must die”
About a year ago, I carved a momento mori from beef bone as a commission. It was meant to be carried in a pocket, so there were no jewelry findings on the carving. Since then, I have carved many more of these bone skulls, and some have been pins and some have been pendants.
This skull necklace is 1.5 x 1.5”, and is finished with sterling plated findings, an adjustable black cotton cord and an antiqued sterling silver bead. It can also be worn on a favourite chain.
I use locally sourced beef bone that I clean and whiten. Once carved, each piece is sanded and buffed to a highly polished finish.
I design and carve my jewellery and sculptures in my studio/ workshop located in Brackley Beach, Prince Edward Island, Canada
