Inspired by Becky's "Split Skull Soup"


About this design:

Becky's fresh pick "Split Skull Soup" inspired this bracelet. I love her color combo and I emulated that and the pieces best I could with what I had on hand. Thanks Becky!

I also tried my hand at homemade chain which I embellished with the green quartz rondelles.

Components:

Pyrite skull bead, faceted pyrite, green quartz, peridot Czech glass rondells all from LB. Black and smokey seed beads from Walmart. Handmade chain and clasp.

    JenniferLynn, The skull is from Lima Beads but it looks like it’s currently out of stock. :( Hopefully they’ll get more soon.
