Just a Memento

Posted on


Here's a new addition coming soon to the Cabinet of Transtemporal Curiosities. A replica of a particularly fine 17th Century Memento Mori Ring.

The piece was initially carved as two components, the skull and one half of the shank. From these two master patterns moulds were made and wax versions were pieced together before being cast using the 'lost wax' casting process. A process we jewellers have been using for around 6000 years. The cast silver version was then selectively polished, satinised, gold plated and 'antiqued'.

Here are some images from the process.
