Filigree Skull Pendant, designed by Ether 11.
This skull is inspired by the old dental phantoms used in the 18th and 19th centuries and the legend of the Screaming skull.
The legends surrounding screaming skull started in England in the 17th century and has become twisted over time. It began as a tradition of keeping the skull of a deceased patriarch and was said to scream if ever removed from it’s place. Despite this warning, they were actually known as guardian skulls and were usually kept in a customized nook within an important room in the house. The skull was the embodiment of the luck for a household or family. Since then, fiction writers from the Victorian era (and onward) have designated the Guardian Skull with a more ominous meaning through countless ghost stories and thus the folklore surrounding the newly named “screaming skull” spread like wildfire.
