The Otherworld Pendant is a Made To Order item. Please see below regarding lead time and production details.
The Otherworld Pendant is a statement piece, bold in both scale and weight. This oversized skull is cast in your choice of Bronze or White Bronze and clutches a glass vial in its teeth, bearing raw honey. The pendant hangs on a 36” oxidized sterling silver chain and is debossed with the Dichotomie monogram for authenticity.
During the 16th and 17th centuries, Memento Mori jewelry was worn as daily adornment by the more learned and affluent of the day. This jewelry was not a symbol of mourning but instead showed the wearer to be a deep thinker, openly acknowledging the fact that death comes to all. It’s presence encouraged one to live life to the fullest as it reminded the wearer that they too, must eventually die.
Ancient Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures used honey to embalm the dead. Its was also packed for the journey of the deceased into the afterlife.
All Otherworld Pendant orders are FINAL and NON-REFUNDABLE. Once an order is placed, production will begin. There will be a 5-7 week lead time to finish each piece, though I will do everything in my power to send as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that each Othrworld Pendant is manufactured and finished by hand so lead time accounts for all stages of the productions process as well as a finishing quality that is up to Dichotomie’s standards.
