This Memento Vitae Memorial Pendant is made of silver with printed copper sides and measuring 3" long by 1" at the widest part. Before cutting this unique jasper, I carefully chose the stone design and shaped it to show its amazing contrast and pattern. I think the black, sparkling druzy on the top of the screw head really makes it glorious.
You simply unscrew the druzy bail and remove the small neoprene gasket to gain access to the interior of the vessel. After inserting your mementos, be sure to clear the interior threads. I'd suggest adding a drop of super glue on the screw to seal it permanently.
As with all jewelry, a certain amount of care must be taken to maintain its beauty. This pendant is water proof, but I wouldn't suggest swimming with it. A quick dip in the shower with you shouldn't harm it. However, you should dry it off and avoid body lotion, hairspray, and perfumes which will create a corrosive environment. Striking the stone against a hard or sharp surface, of course, could result in cracking or scratching.
If you receive my work and decide that it's absolutely not for you, I will give you credit for the full amount or an 80% refund; that is, if the article arrives to me in the same condition in which it was sent to you.
Memento Vitae Memorial Pendant
Memento Vitae memorial jewelry is my answer for the human need to hold whom and what we love close to us. Unlike the momento mori jewelry of the Victorian period, which was a reminder of our own mortality, my "Memento Vitae" serve to remind us of who or what is special and important in each of our lives.
