A Beautiful Ending
Created by Kim Eric Lilot
A Memento Mori necklace of interlocking white gold skeletal links with fabricated hinges and joinery. The wreath is fashioned from 24, 18 and 14karat white, green, red, royal and yellow golds. Bezel set with a dramatic 2.55ct Australian Black Fire Opal (origin: Cooper Peedy). Note the hidden Lentoid closure clasp. The inspiration for this necklace was a desire to create a primal tribute to all sentient beings and our shared brief yet significant existence. The narrative symbolism of the transitory beauty in the spring floral wreath and the ominous bookends that frame our existence should not be lost on anyone who appreciates this design.
