Skull Talisman

Skull Talisman

After a year spent in ritual and conversation with what is now a dear friend, it has become time to honor what they seem to be asking for. This particular skull came into my posession after it was damaged by vandals after many years as a school study piece. Necromancy is, at its core about recycling, and this skull, for better or worse, was bound for the garbage. I was allowed to purchase it, and bring it into my care, and now, I have the honor to make something beautiful and magical of it.


Truly, one cannot put a price on the life that this person once led. What I must do instead, is put a price on the cost of acquiring it, a price for silver, and a price for my labor. I have carefully calculated each item to weight, and taken an incredible amount of time to not only ritually embue each with energies aligned to ancestral protection and death magic—but to learn silversmithing to do all of the hand work myself.


This piece contains a round pendant piece (20MM) of skull featuring a section of Coronal sutures, Frontal/Parietal—right, set in fine silver. The magical purpose of this piece is three-fold. First: it acts as a classic evil eye pendant, warding away ills. Secondly: the spirit associated with the piece stands at the ready to whisper a warning if a situation or person is unsafe. Lastly: it aids in communication with the dead. If you have natural mediumship abilities it will give you a boost. If you have none, it will act as a stand-in for that natural ability.



Pendants like these are typically leveled into their base with sawdust. I have chosen for this purpose dust from a 300 year old disinterred coffin. Additionally, this item does not include a chain. The one pictured is for display only.

    All sales are final. Mortellus reserves the right to cancel or decline any order, for any reason. If you require a cancellation of your pre-order, you will receive shop credit for the amount paid. 

  • Shipping Restrictions

    Please note that you are responsible for knowing the laws in your area. Mortellus cannot ship these talismans to Georgia, Tennessee, or Louisiana, and they cannot be responsible/liable in the event that your piece is siezed by any authority or lost in shipping. Should the address for your order be one of these states, Mortellus will reach out to you for an accurate shipping address or cancel your order if relevant.

  • Shipping Damages or Losses

    In a perfect world, a section like this one would not be necessary, but sadly, the postal service has been damaging packages more and more of late. Mortellus wishes they could replace every single one in the rare instance that this happens (and sometimes does) but can't in every instance. If you'd like shipping insurance, reach out before placing your order (tracking numbers are always provided). Otherwise, if something goes sideways in the mail, reach out and Mortellus will do all that they can to assist, but as a general policy: Mortellus is not responsible for items damaged or lost in shipping, and cannot offer replacements.
