The Memento Mori Bandana Slide
This listing is for a very sentimentally New Orleans piece. This bandana slide, made out of yellow brass, is based off both an antique cemetery urn fixture I found when I first moved to New Orleans a decade ago, as well as in tribute to a @mrsamrsamrsa // @skylarfeinart “In Memory of all you dead fucks” patch that became a New Orleans punk beacon around the same time. I’ve carried that patch with me on all my past vests, but after the last two were stolen, it’s just been an icon I think back on sometime, so here, I’ve given it a new life. As a brass bandana slide, the urn stamped with those initials “IMOAYDF” - the back of the urn pendant, marked with NOLA, and the band was made in a ring size 6, ya know, just in case you want to wear it both ways.
It measures 1 1/4” wide and 1" tall.
The band diameter is just shy of 3/4" or fits a ring size 6.
It weighs .47 oz.
As each of these pieces are new designs, they are all still in a way prototypes. After years of moving metal I trust in their strength and longeviety. But I also know with handmade sometimes small surprises come up, I stand behind my work completely, so if ever there is any issue with one of these pieces due to my handiwork I will absolutely repair it for you asap. If the issue of said piece seems to come from user ware, I will also happily repair the piece for you, for a reasonable labor/material fee. I want you to wear these pieces for life. Support handmade, and these hands will support you <3
That being said, please see the care instructions card that will come with your piece for how to properly give your SSH goods the longest life possible!
