Skull Appreciation Blog Hop Monday

Good Morning!  It's Monday- which is why I am running behind schedule.  But I am here now and I can't wait to show you some of my skully creations.  But before I do, let me tell you a little about them.  Several years ago I made a pair of skull earrings embellished with flowers and vines, and I LOVED them.  So, I made more.  And I sold those to friends and friends of friends.  A year later as Day of the Dead approached I decided to make more.  A friend of mine talked me into setting up a booth at the local Day of the Dead Festival, and so I set about creating more skull art adornments.  I began adding drops and beads and wires.  And as I worked I became inspired to create other skulls, my 6" canvases.


I don't create skulls all year; it is an inspired period of creativity and then it hibernates for a while.  If you like what you see here today, visit my Etsy shop, http://www.etsy.com/shop/GryphonWylde  . I will post some of my creations that have not yet found homes.  And while you are here, I invite you to check out some of my older posts.  They vary greatly in voice and content, and so each week promises something new.

Enjoy blog hopping today and thanks for stopping by!

    1. I will definitely look into that. I am new at this whole blogging thing- and since I don't see what others see when I view my blog I had no idea that you were prompted to verify your human status- or anti spam status. Thanks for the heads-up. -Renee
