These one of a kind decorated skulls are my favorite pieces to make. Since I am fascinated with The Day of the Dead, which is celebrated Nov 1 in Mexico, I have been inspired to let my imagination and love of vintage jewelry go wild. I have great respect for the holiday, which includes a playfulness and peacefulness with the subject of death. Plus, the skulls are so cool!

This particular skull is papier mache and is totally decorated in vintage jewelry, trimmings, flowers and feathers.

Her eyes are aurora glass stones circled in clear and pink rhinestones. Her teeth are vintage prong set periwinkle glass beads from a vintage gown - and her nose is an upside down silver heart with beaded edges. On milady's forehead is a very old and beautiful mother of pearl floral carving.

Her hat is a vision! The vintage pink velvet rose is a standout amongst the other numerous yellow and coffee colored flowers. Hidden in the multi colored fringe and braid is a 1940's hand beaded yellow daisy, along with feathers and ribbon.

I love the 1940s yellow porcelain flower on the top!
Every inch of this 6" by 6" by 8" high skull is covered with tiny flowers, trimmings, braid, and yellow leaves from a 1950's necklace. The heads sits on a pink stone pedestal rimmed with braid and mirrors.

I have sold quite a few of these in the past. Remember that I have a varied selection, so let me know if you would like to see some of the others or more photos of this one. I even have one with a removable hat!

You may also request a custom order done in your colors, etc. Prices will range, as will shipping charges.
