This is a first – me working with a skull jewelry component! I call it angel skull because of the wings. It is from Green Girl Studios and its proper name is winged skull pendant. I tried working with it at the suggestion of Andrew Thornton whose sister owns Green Girl Studios. It is definitely outside of my normal comfort zone but despite that, I went ahead and gave it a try.
I have to say I love the results, maybe I am channeling my inner rocker chick bad ass self. Who knows?
One thing nice about the pendant is that the connection points are behind it allowing for a nice flow to the jewelry. Below the pendant I added circular chain with darkened heart charms, deep red faceted glass and a single old key. Above the pendant, I kept it simple – more of the deep red glass, smoky quartz cubes and fresh water pearls. The seed beads that serve as separators are a deep luster purple – the only ones that would work with this piece.
I love it. Thank you Andrew. Thank you Green Girl Studios. Here’s to angel skull!
