The Crystal Skull Rosary in sterling silver: a highly detailed, grinning skull carved of pure quartz crystal hangs from a hand wrapped rosary of black fire-polished Czech glass and sterling silver.
Rosary measures 28" or 71cm. The drop measures 4", or 10cm measuring from connector to the base of the skull. This necklace easily fits over the head and has no clasp to interrupt the chain.
Many legends surround crystal skulls, and this rosary necklace was inspired by a recent visit to the British Museum. The crystal skull displayed there is a fake (not really pre-Colombian as initially thought) but it is still a dazzling object.
Crystal skulls are often used for divination and combined with the power of the sun have been used for spell work.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
