if you were ever curious as to why I'm looking for ceramic steer skulls, you're about to get your answer.



I make beaded masks to go over them.  I've posted others in the past, but they were a bit smaller than this.  also, I received this skull from fellow Craftsterer, mieljolie.  I don't think she's online anymore though.  Sad  but thanks to her trade, I was [eventually] able to make another one of these masks.  Grin  oh!  and I only broke one bead!  Cheesy

lol.  true!  it is the Native American symbol for the sun on this mask so it really works.  Grin  I'm so jealous of New Mexico for that reason; their standard license plates are turquoise with the sun on them!!!  Sad  that should be Arizona's design!!!

This is a really nice piece. I could see it hanging on a wall in a southwestern-style decorated home. It would look great.

thanks a bunch!  and actually there are 4 of these hanging in this house (it's southwestern-style.  I mean, we ARE in Arizona).  but the 3 with bright red are in my bedroom.  they don't fit anywhere else because of all of the bright red in them.

It's certainly a very bright red but it's beautiful. You have the patience of a saint to bead something like that.

 Grin  it's just something that I love to do.  I just can't figure out why my beading curves.  sometimes it's a good thing, like for the straps around the eyes, sometimes it's bad.  I found this cute, simple idea for a pendant in square stitch, but mine would be all wonky.  Sad  I don't know how to fix it either!   Sad
