This necklace was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven". The raven is also known as a psychopomp, transporting souls to the next dimension. In this necklace, a dark bird perches over a decorated coffin with the word Nevermore wrapped around it. The coffin has a carved skull surrounded by flowers, carved from black buffalo horn. The coffin and the raven are surrounded by intricate silver patterns that have been patinated aged black for an appropriately gothic feel. (photos have been slightly lightened to better display details in the coffin). The necklace is sterling silver and is 3 inches tall, yet is surprisingly lightweight due to the hollow form of the bird and the lightness of the buffalo horn. Comes with an 18 inch silver filled box chain.
