Wear a piece of history -- pendants from the past!
times carvings on parts of a gravestone are small enough to translate
into wearable art. Our unique pendants are made using the same process
as our Castings. Hung on adjustable cord, they come in natural, vibrant
or metallic colors and make a great gift for someone who is not so
ordinary. We'll choose the color for you!
Due to their size,
these items are all hand pressed, so please allow for variations in
shape and thickness.

A prime example of primitive New England folk art, this skull was
carved for the gravestone of John Fuller in 1717. Who could pass by
this image without thinking about their own mortality? We cast the
skull portion of the image, without its wings, as it has plenty of
impact all by itself. This is what you think of when you envision old
gravestones! Mr. Fuller died on February 25, 1717 and is buried in the
East Parish Burial Ground of Newton Centre, Massachusetts.
Dimension: 3.5" dia.
This tiny winged skull is an element from the gravestone of William
Button of Jersey (England, that is) who died the 19th day of October
1693. His heavily ornamented stone is located in the 1671 Burial
Ground, in Strawberry Banke (Portsmouth), New Hampshire. The pendant
created from the artwork on his stone is cast in alloyed metal that has
a silver metal/chrome finish. These pendants are solid metal and can be
heavy,...get your neck ready!!
