This extraordinary gothic Skull Lariat necklace is entirely handmade.
Skulls are appealing because they symbolize rebirth, renewal and spiritual awakening.
The skull is cast in sterling silver, then I added a crown made out of bezel wire for effect.
The skull sits on a pierced background and is set in a lariat style for its unique structure.
A lovely dalmatian agate drops three inches from the necklace for a retro look.
The agate has an open back so that light can hit the stone and show off its features.
The necklace is 18 inches in length with a 3 inch drop for the lariat.
