InspirationFX: Skulls Rock

Get your creative juices flowing

Skulls Rock
by: Carol Cooper
Avast there ye pirates! Moisten the mizzenmast and batten down the quilts!

These skulls appeal to me because they are pretty cheerful looking! They alternately remind me of Mexican Folk Art and Skull Rock Island and Peter Pan battling Cap'n Hook while the crocodile hungrily ticks in the water below.

  • Put the skull bead on the headpin-with-a-loop, and make a wrapped loop at the top.
  • Put the rhinestone ball on the other headpin, and start a wrapped loop, but don't close it.
  • Thread it onto the loop below the skull, and finish the wrapped loop
  • Add to the ear wire by opening the loop on earwire.
Even Skulls need some bling!

Editors' note: We're delighted to welcome Carol to the team of inspiration writers and look forward to seeing more designs from her in the future!
