    What meanings do the Skull and Cross Bones have for Us ?

    Memento mori is a Latin phrase meaning 'remember you must die'. A basic memento mori painting would be a portrait with a skull but other symbols commonly found are coins and Jewelry.

    The haunting reality of life’s uncertainty shows itself in many forms: art, literature, architecture, and jewelry. Memento Mori rings were worn by everyone from Queen Victoria to the impoverished. Skeletal bands and skulls wearing a crown reminded wearers that death is the master of all. However, We we are the Masters of our own lives .
    And so , a small Pirate story...❤️

    On a foggy night in 1701, a notorious pirate arrived in Smugglers Cove. As the crew of the Flying Moon labored , their Captain wrote in blood his treasure map. When the booty, said to be a fantasy of Gold, Silver and rare gems had been secreted away the skies opened with such a storm that the men never saw their intended landfall the Port of New Orleans.
    It is also said that island moon Jewelry was begun with this treasure and endures to this day…
    As told by Captain Gypsy

    My one of a kind wearable art designs are hand wrought .999 Fine Silver. After Hand building , Carving and Refining the Precious Metal Clays , I kiln fire the designs revealing the Beauty of the Silver surface as the Organic Binder burns away. Using a blend of Patina acids and Salts( my secret sauce ) I hand torch Multiple layers resulting in a transformed multi hued and textured piece of Art.
