This mens necklace combines a black Swarovski crystal skull pendant with black obsidian for a look that is intense and dramatic. The crystal Swarovski skull is faceted and captures the light, sometimes appearing silver, then black with deep metallic titanium hues. I chose black obsidian for the basis of the necklace to compliment and intensify the effects of the skull. Hill Tribes silver tube beads compliment the silvery-black skull and add contrast. The obsidian and silver beads are separated by black agate rondelles which add fluidity to the necklace. A sterling silver hook clasp completes the design.
The necklace measures 19 inches in length, and the Swarovski pendant measures approximately 1 by ¾ inches. I designed this necklace so it can easily be worn by a man or a woman as it is a versatile style. Ancient peoples used obsidian to create knives and arrowheads, and in the middle ages, obsidian was used as a protective talisman. It has also been considered a stone of truth. Combining these elements with the skull adds dimension to a design that is dramatically intense.
