Sterling Silver Pendant for Chain. The bale opening is little bigger than 1/4 inch = 7.5mm good for large chain or beads or 6mm round leather chord! Hand carved mother of pearl, Ruby Lab Created, If you want different stones please email me! This pendant is the spirit of Frida, frozen into silver and Mother of Pearl, in the spirit of my culture. July 6 is her birthday, celebrate with this necklace pendant. The Mother of Pearl carving is well protected by the raised silver areas around it. Here I wish to show a great oneness with nature and culture. The skull with flowers in the eyes sees love all around but blinded by beauty.The big nostrils are wide open to remind us to take a breath of prana. This pendant screams love not war. The stones are lab created in Switzerland created Burmese Ruby ( The stones are identical chemical composition and hardness and light refraction, to the natural ) and conflict free. The stones represent planets that we all live with and the same ones Frida saw. On the sides are flowers, she loved to wear in her hair to celebrate life and shower us all with love. This pendant is a real celebration of life and death. There is also a rose on the baile where you insert the chain, this is the great Diego Rivera. The Mother of Pearl Skull carved by Ruben measures 1 1/8" tall and 3/4" wide. 45 grams of solid Sterling silver. The Skull frame is 1 1/2 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide, this is BIG. Look at photos of Frida, she wore this type of big and fine jewelry, she wore many of them at once. I always love seeing pictures of Frida with her braids gathered on top of her head in an old Tehuana style from Mexico. I remember my Grandmother's braids that way sometimes. Each pendant is designed, hand made,and personally signed and dated by Ruben Xolotol Viramontes. I will carve a new skull for each order, little changes may occur, they are one of a kind carvings, also material color may vary a little.
