1st October 2010 saw the release of a very special limited edition.
Designed by Søren Nielsen, the Skeleton is 14.5 cm / 5.7 inch in length. The Skeleton Necklace includes a 50 cm / 19.7 inch sterling silver necklace with Plain Lock, and comes in a luxury presentation box.
The Skeleton is sterling silver with 18 carat gold decoration around its throat.
The head is two sided, displaying a skull on one side and a face on the other. The head itself can be worn separately as a bead on its own.
The torso and arms are one piece, and the shoulders, elbow and wrists are all jointed.
The vertebrae are represented by five numbered silver discs.
The pelvis and legs are then also in one piece, again with fully jointed hips, knees and ankles.
Glass beads can be worn where the vertebrae are to add a splash of colour if wanted.
This release was very limited, with a price tag that made it out of the reach of many a collector. Due to the nature and size of the design, it will appeal to some collectors but not to others. That said, nothing can detract from the exquisiteness of this piece.
