ossuaries are places that inspired me to plunge into making bone jewelry. one of them, kutna hora in czech republic made the biggest impression on me. after visiting this place i started to search for surprising symmetry in natural bones and this pendant is one of the results. later i used the opportunity to travel to another ossuary in evora, portugal. the skull of a roe deer was a gift from my portuguese friend. it’s dark, feminine, and a bit gothic with this small silver flower detail.
