The image of the skull and crossbones is often seen on tattoos. Although it is associated with pirates and other meanings, the skull and cross bones is also a Tibetan symbol.
The skull is often seen as an object for contemplation on mortality. In Tibet the skull also stands for two of the four Precious Gifts: the precious gift of human birth and the precious gift of impermanence or change. This is a Buddhist way of understanding the present moment.
Life is short and it's important to be rooted in the moment. That's why I made myself a ring just like this, to bring me back to earth. The ring reminds me that ruminating about the past or feeling anxiety about the future serve no purpose. The best I can do is what works in the moment. I can do my best right now and nothing more.
I made this ring out of fine silver, then oxidized it to bring out the recessed areas. I polished it and hardened the silver by putting it in a rotary tumbler for an hour with stainless steel shot. This is what gives it a smoothness like tumbled rock.
This will be made to size for each individual order, so I'll need your ring size and up to a week to complete it. It will be stamped .999 before it is sent to you. The image of the skull is about 1/2" tall.
Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon!
