The Crystal Skull Rosary-- a highly detailed, grinning skull carved of pure quartz crystal hangs from a hand wrapped rosary of black fire-polished Czech glass.
Rosary measures 28" or 71cm with a hook and eye clasp. The drop measures 6", or 15cm measuring from connector to the base of the skull.
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.
