Snapdragon Skulls Obol
When souls departed to the underworld they were carried across the river Styx that separated the mortal realm from Hades domain by Charon, the Ferryman. His fee was one Obol, and so a coin was placed on the eyes of a corpse to pay Charon's fare and give safe passage for the deceased soul into the underworld.
These Bonearrow Obols are made of Sterling Silver, more than enough to cover your journey, and comes on an 18 inch chain.
I’ve been fascinated with Snapdragon Seed Pods ever since I first set eyes on them. Surely they aren’t real I thought, but yep, one autumn I went out in search of a snapdragon plant and there they were. Perfect little screaming fairy skulls, some with long pointy noses, all with terrified gapping mouths. I instantly fell in love and I knew I wanted to keep them forever, so, like Medusa turned her enemies to stone, I turned them to silver.
This necklace will be handmade to order in my Nottingham workshop and will take up to 2 weeks to make, from you placing your order to it being shipped out.
