For centuries the skull has been used to represent death and mortality. Commonly featured in Victorian mourning jewellery along with the phrase ‘Memento Mori’ (‘Remember that you will die’), the idea is to make us appreciate the transience of time and to make the most of life. The lightning bolt is the universal symbol for electricity (and rock’n’roll), but going further back it also has a symbolism in Greek mythology – Zeus (God of the Sky) carried a double-headed axe to symbolise lightning. If you would prefer a different length or style of chain all of the pendants and chains are sold separately, so you can combine them however you like to make your own personalised necklace.
