The skull is one of man's oldest and most powerful symbols. It has a long and varied history of use with multiple overlapping interpretations. Most commonly it is seen as a representation of death and mortality, but it has many other uses including:

- To invoke fear or caution.
- To celebrate the memory of the dead.
- To celebrate life.
- As a symbol of vanity.
- As a symbol of life after death.
- As a symbol of change.
- As a means of obtaining good luck or avoiding bad luck.
- As a symbol of toughness, machismo, courage, bravery or indifference to death and danger.
- As a symbol of nonconformity, free-thinking, and rebelliousness.
- For cute appeal and fashion.
- As pure decoration.

Skulls have different meaning to different people.
Some people perceive them to be negative, evil or demonic,
but to a lot of people the meaning is completely different.
When you see a skull, you should not rush to judgment
or assume it represents a symbol of death.

The symbolism of skulls to many include:
protection,
strength,
power,
fearlessness,
wisdom and guidance,
overcoming death,
surviving through a difficult time,
or even immortality.

Winged skulls can represent mortality beyond death
and skulls are the main symbol of the Mexican holiday "Day of the Dead"
or D�a de los Muertos in Spanish.
This holiday is similar to "All Saints Day"
when family and friends gather to pray for, and to remember
loved ones who have died.

The skull and crossbones symbol to many
symbolizes rebirth
or a gateway to a higher realm of understanding
achievable only through spiritual death and rebirth.

In Celtic culture, the skull is believed to be the seat of power
and the house of the soul.

In ancient and primitive cultures
skulls were believed to ward off evil or illness
and wearing skulls would insure protection and well-being.

Other cultures and religions have their beliefs as well,
and of course,
some people simply think skulls are cool
and don't symbolize anything at all.

    I love my several of these bangles. I was lucky to purchase the last few. They are so industrial chic and forward looking compared w/vintage; ironic since they are from old metal from Africa. Going into the goth meets athletics of spring '19 these will be fabulous. Not a fashion junkie but I love when things are in harmony. These are perfectly pitched. Really great shop full of eclectic beauty.

    Boho meets industrial design. Wonderful heavy metal in delicate strands. Beautifully entwined. Great art statement look. Fits my wrist well and love the several I bought alone or with other simple metal bracelets. #everydaywear#unique Nice seller/great shop.

    I have watched Teresa for years as an incomparable artist in Big Sur. She was a fixture in a magical shop there. So I was ecstatic to see her work on Easy. And when I saw her earrings I knew I had to have them. They are light and shimmery. I have worn them several times and people aways want to know about them. I will definitely be a returning customer.
