SWEET SKULLS Band - Sterling $199 14KT $1199

This ring celebrates the Sugar Skull Artwork that is so popular here in Tucson, as well as our famous All Soul's Procession which occurs in early November.

The All Soul's Procession was created here in Tucson to serve our collective need to mourn, reflect, and celebrate the universal experience of Death - through our ancestors, loved ones, and the living too. Well over 150,000 participants come together on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed. This All Souls Procession is nearly 30 years old and is uniquely authentic, solemn, joyful, mournful, celebratory, and respectful. Not a parade nor a party and very few problems considering the number of people that are involved.


My desire to make this piece and the other Memento Mori pieces I have created come out of my personal experiences of this event as well as my own understanding of life and our inevitable mortality.
 

The intricate details run around the entire band. It is solidly crafted in your choice of 14KT white, yellow or rose gold or .925 sterling silver. I can also make this in 10KT, 18KT, 22KT or 24KT gold, platinum, palladium, or most other metals. Please contact us for a quote.

Each piece is individually carved and crafted to your size. Many jewelers duplicate their original models with rubber molds, but you just don't get the same crisp detail in a mass produced copy. All of my rings are created from a first generation wax model. This ring is heavy enough to stand the test of time.

  • To create your individually handcrafted piece, our current workload requires approximately four weeks from the date of order to the date of shipping. If you need your piece sooner, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your request at no extra charge. Customized pieces may take longer. Please contact us for an ETA.
