Inspired by antique Memento Mori jewellery where human hair was braided to create the most intricate pieces to remember those that have passed away or given as tokens of one's love and affection....
Fabulous cocktail ring with pink coral beads lodged between two hand carved black buffalo horn skulls.
Each piece is painstakingly handcrafted over a period of two days using the finest black silk to create a sturdy and visually striking piece.
The body of the ring is made to resemble crushed spider web - hence the collection name - Arachne - a mortal weaver who was turned by Minerva into a spider. Skulls represent our mortality as well as transient nature of all things material....Only one left!!
