A Life in Dream - Rendition 6 of 6, Made to Order

“Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence...
They do divide our being; they become
A portion of ourselves as of our time,
And look like heralds of eternity;
They pass like spirits of the past—they speak
Like sibyls of the future; they have power—
The tyranny of pleasure and of pain;
They make us what we were not—what they will,
And shake us with the vision that's gone by,
The dread of vanished shadows—Are they so?
Is not the past all shadow?—What are they?
Creations of the mind?—The mind can make
Substances, and people planets of its own
With beings brighter than have been, and give
A breath to forms which can outlive all flesh...
—for in itself a thought,
A slumbering thought, is capable of years,
And curdles a long life into one hour.”
~ Lord Byron

***I’m pleased to be offering renditions 4, 5 and 6 of this composition to be made to order. Pictured are the first 3 of the series of 6. Please note: while I use the same hand drawn template for each rendition, each “dream” is individual - all of the halos have different flame patterns. Yours will be almost exactly the same as the first, with minor variations due to the hand made nature of my work.

A handcut and layered fine and sterling silver skeleton rests, curled on within the swirls of his own bronze dreams. This pendant is fabricated out of 7 separate layers of silver and brass, then layered, textured and oxidized. The metals are mixed, but the reverse is all sterling silver, so it won't bother those of us sensitive to base metals. It measures approximately 2 3/4" in length and 1 1/5" wide, strung from an 18" sterling silver box chain. The chain is left shiny to match the shiny areas of the pendant (despite looking otherwise in some of the photos - shiny metal is tricky to photograph). If you prefer a longer or shorter chain, please send an email to marina@stonesparrowdesign.com and I'd be happy to swap for another length I have in stock.

Please be aware that it can take me up to 8 weeks from the order date to complete your made to order, handcrafted item. If you feel that you cannot wait that long, please select from my ready to ship options.

By purchasing from Stone Sparrow Design, it is implied that you have read and understand all policies set forth in the policies page of this website.

Thank you! XOXO Marina
