Skull Beads-- Lampwork with Day of the Dead Appeal

One look at my etsy shop and you will know that i like to make bone-shaped glass beads.  The bones are good for either dog lover's jewelry, or Halloween jewelry.  Oh and i suppose paleontologist might choose wear bones.   And Day of the Dead aficionados.  And now i am finally rolling out my skull beads.

It seems like every year or so, i would try to sculpt a few skull shaped beads, and my results were terrible, and then, eventually, not quite so terrible.  But this year i seem to have finally figured it out and i am having a good old time making little skulls and decorating them with flowers, ferns and tendrils.

Please visit my etsy shop: The Bead You Need, for purchases or queries.
