Memento Mori Bracelet, Silver Cross & Skull Charm, Your Initial Included
This Memento Mori rosary bracelet features a little skull charm (known as a memento mori) in a bracelet of 10 red Czech glass beads. At the front of the bracelet is a pewter cube letter bead of your choice, with a small silver plated cross set with a red rhinestone on one side & the memento mori charm on the other.
Traditionally added to a rosary, chaplet or bracelet, the little skull was intended to be a reminder of the brevity of life and the ever-present reality of death. Many saints like St Gerard Majella kept an actual skull for this purpose - he was known to keep one as a memento mori on his desk, as did many educated Europeans.
The 10 beads in this wrist rosary are deep garnet red Czech glass art beads with a marbled effect, separated with tiny white glass & silver beads. The bracelet closes with a lobster catch.
A bracelet with a clasp is designed to fit loosely on your wrist & drape slightly over your hand. It is not made to be worn tight on your arm.
Measure your wrist just above the wristbone - do not add any extra length. Select that measurement from the drop-down size options & I will make sure the bracelet is a comfortable fit.
The bracelet comes attractively packaged, along with a small card about the history of the memento mori charm.
