Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons

I saw this "Claws for Alarm" neck piece at the blog.mode: addressing fashion exhibit at the Met a few months back. It was so much cooler in real life than in this picture. But anyway, it reminded me how fascinated I am with momento-mori type things especially of the Victorian era when they made jewelry from hair of the deceased.

Today i stumbled across the website for Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons. They have some really beautiful hand crafted momento-mori inspired jewelry. I especially love all the scrimshaw vintage piano key necklaces.
