This is my first attempt to post something in beads / jewlery .... and i am not very sure where to put it - but anyway it is here since it has very little actual knotting ....

All the beads are bone beads except one piece or coral i found on the beach. The most i am proud of are the REAL vertebra beads i have in the bracelet and in one of the earring .... Please let me know what do you think  Smiley

I absolutely love the skull dragonfly.  My mom and I are crazy about dragonflies but I have a feeling she wouldn't like this as much as I do Roll Eyes.  Anyhoo, good job!

Hi,

Thanks so much ..... I like the reference to the Silance of the Lambs - when i did the pendant i didn't realize it  Cheesy

The vertebra beads were given to me - i have no idea from where they came or what animal they are ..... I suspect is a kind of bird because they are small and roundish, no spikes out of them .....

I bought the rest of the beads from a bead store in West Palm Beach, FL called Crystal Creations. The dragonfly beads and the skull beads were obscenely expensive - at least for my budget  Shocked

The small round beads are bone african beads - the cheap kind.

Beautiful work.  They're a little macabre for my taste, but you did a great job.
