Skull Bracelet...

I was so inspired by Anne Choi's new sugar skull pendant that I whipped up this quick bracelet.  I pulled the main color palette from Pam Wynn of Pam and Heather Wynn's polymer beads – turquoise and copper.  The bone and ceramic skulls were presents from Margot Potter, but you can pick them up from Anima Designs if you don't have a good friend with excess skull beads.  The Czech glass is from Raven's Journey and the pearls are from Talisman Associates Inc..  I used a fine pewter sugar skull bead from my family at Green Girl Studios, a bronze skull cross from Candice Wakumoto, and the sterling silver toggle from Saki Silver.  The knurled peanut chain is from Ornamentea.  The Swarovski crystals in crystal copper and satin indicolite are from Fusion Beads.  I think this bracelet is a lot of fun!  It's surprisingly light for how chunky it is and has a lot of movement.

Oh Andrew I just love your fun bracelet. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is big here in NM. I will have to create one now. I hope Anne has her new skull charm for sale soon! I hope all is well.
