These earrings combine the ancient jewelry concept of Memento Mori with modern-day gem-cutting technologies in the form of a black diamond cut into a skull shape. I have always been inspired by skulls, as artists have been for centuries. This set is the third in my Carpe Diem series, which translates to "seize the day." The concepts of memento mori and carpe diem go hand-in-hand, reminding the wearer to live each day to its fullest, as it could be one's last.
