This skull was carved for a totem skull piece I did. This is the antler totem skull, bottom of the totem. I imagined him as the strongest and most peaceful of the three. The yellow bag has embroidery and shiny bits to make it stand out a bit more since the fabric was bland compared to the other two.

Each bag has a hand strung chain. It is composed of one colorful stone skull bead, and 3 glass beads to match the bags color scheme. As you can see in the close up below. Cheesy


===================================================================


The design is something I call the "Hardcore Skull." I named it so because of the following reasons. The pain held within, never showing, fearful of rejection is shown by the crying eye, while sporting a manly moustache and missing a tooth, likely knocked out during a fight.

These each come with a metal clasp so you can hook it onto your keys, bag, purse, etc!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
