Oreo Skully

About this design:

This was just me messing around trying to replicate a knot I saw. After much fiddling, I finally figured it out. :)
The rest of the knots in the this are just overhand knots.

I know... It's another Halloween piece...but I love it so. So there will be more to come. ;)


Faceted banded smoky agate, 1.5mm black leather cord from LB. Black magnesite skull and silver toned metal button.

    I wouldn’t consider this just a halloween piece. Its very pinkish, metal rocker type without being overly so. Great choice of beads and love the button

    Nicely done! Being a bit squeamish about Halloween/spooky stuff……I really like this one! This could be for a man or woman too.

    I sent you a review via your Etsy shop but must also comment here that this is really a gorgeous bracelet even with the black skull. I’m envious of your knotting ability. But the banded agate is a real star here for this bracelet. Gorgeous!

    Thank you all for your wonderful comments! I always appreciate your feedback. Since you all like the button too, I think I got it from Hobby Lobby.

    CAS I find them addictive as well, but not the chocolate ones, I like the golden. They are tooooo good!

    LOL Becky “some(k)not. Too funny!

    Peggy, I didn’t even realize when I got these beads how large the hole was until I pulled them out to make this. I was originally going to use C-Lon to string them with this piece. Low and behold the holes fit the leather!

    To be honest, I can’t take credit for the name because Ron came up with it, as he does so many. He’s so clever!

    Gail Layne says:

    Love! Been eyeing those stones forever and your design certainly shows them off! I agree with Deb, this bracelet does give off a wonderfully goth/punk vibe and could be worn anytime.
