This necklace was inspired by iron maiden torture chambers. During my last play through of the Witcher 3 I started thinking about how I would design a cage like this. Using references from the game and from crypts in Italy that displayed the skeletons of saints I created this necklace.
The pendant and chain are made of solid sterling silver and the pendant itself measures about 4” long. The skeleton figure is made of carved cow bone and has been hand carved. Underneath the figure is 23k gold leaf to give the piece a pop of color to contrast the oxidized sterling silver. The top opens and closes with a welded hinge so it won’t come off.
