Another Day of the Dead image immortalized with a glass cabochon. Also another foray into expanding my color palette, as I am not at all a pink person.
The skull is highlighted with bits of sparkle, then encased under glass. The surrounding beads are a mix of 8°, 11° and 15°.
To keep the necklace from becoming totally saccharine, there’s a baby blue picot around the focal.
This piece was shouting loud and clear that it did not want to be a brooch. So, necklace it is.
For continuity I used the same beads in the strand as are in the bezel. A few hand-formed pink links allow for adjust-ability. The whole is back with a Southwestern faux leather.
