Mexican Raven Skull

Mexican Raven Skull

By Nik Von Kay
 

Another design inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead where dead relatives are remembered with colourfully painted skulls.


The festival is one of celebration reminding us not to fear death but simply acknowledge it as a transition to the next life. The raven is often a bird associated with the darker side of life as the bird is completely black. For me this piece is about not fearing death, and living a life free from that fear.

A self-confessed collector, Nick surrounds himself with a rare and interesting mix of inspirations, all of which influence his jewelry range.

ā€œIā€™m a magpie so my studio is tumbling with a collection of the strange and wonderful things I have found. There are skulls galore including a duck, a monkey, a bear, a dog, a cat and even a replica sabre tooth tiger. There are also whale teeth, carved bits of deer antler or mammoth ivory, unusual wooden ornaments, ancient padlocks from India, steel sculpture from my time as a blacksmith, rare crystals, exotic butterflies, beautiful feathers and lots of small handcarved bits and pieces. I find inspiration in many different things.ā€
