Skully Brass Necklace
Skully, a horned flying monkey creature, is a collaboration between LA fashion designer Jan Hilmer and Blamo Founder Spencer Hansen. We’ve shrunkified the original rice-stuffed leather and brass plush to pendant size.
To create Skully, I first drew him and then sculpted him out of clay. I gave my clay version to Andu, who carved a miniature version out of wax, then took it to a local casting facility that uses our wax carving to create a casting in brass. Ardi, the silversmith at my workshop, takes it from there, cleaning up the casting and looping it to our solid brass necklace.
This solid brass charm pendant measures 4 cm x 2 cm and hangs from a 70 cm solid brass chain.
Please note that because all Blamo keychains are handmade, despite our efforts to create the perfect art figure, each one is unique and may contain minor imperfections… or as we like to call it, character.
