From Gothic Rose Antiques: “Large 3 1/2″ long raven skull on silver tone chain. Skull is heavy silver plated jeweler’s bronze, with a gun metal sheen, recently artist made. A real eye catcher! Other items in the picture are for sale also and sold separately.”
The No. 1/1 blog is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorites.

Most of these wonderful items will unfortunately be sold out by the time you’re reading this post. If that’s the case, then search for newer listings here.
