Our Skull studs may be small but they're filled with fire and freedom. The fire that breathes passion for living and the freedom to create a life that speaks to the core of who you are. When faced with your mortality remember to live.
MEANING: The skull represents our mortality and is a symbol of transformation. In life a metaphorical death must take place in order for something new to be created in its place. The Buddhists believe that the skull symbolizes emptiness and in the space of nothing the possibilities are endless.
- Sterling Silver
- 14K Gold Vermeil
Please Note: The patina on each pendant may vary as each one is painted and aged by hand. Solid Gold and Gold Vermeil pieces are made to order.
What is Gold Vermeil? Our vermeil pieces (ver-may) consist of a thick layer of 14K gold over solid sterling silver.
The thickness of the gold layer is what sets vermeil jewelry apart from simple gold-plated pieces. All our vermeil jewelry is coated with 3 Microns (0.003mm) of gold and protected with an e-coating.
Gold vermeil is a fantastic option for building a collection of high-quality jewelry.
