"While death burns the lips of other cultures,
Mexicans are familiar with death,
joke about it, caress it, sleep with it,
it is one of their favorite toys and their most steadfast love."
I have made a lot of designs in jewelry but am always happiest when making skulls. A friend of mine last night actually told me that she thought my best work was with the skulls and why not concentrate on that alone? Oh...would not that be business suicide? Hahaha!!!
Who knows but I think I need to do what I love.
Currently I am having mucho fun at making these skulls and am in the process of designing more skulls of a scary kind. These skulls are made from recycled Louisiana license plates, found objects, and tin collected from several places, Mexico being one of them. Although a friend of mine brought the ones from Mexico on over.
Words are stamped on the back side of everyone of the TinSkulls.
I am in the process of making Winter Calaveras. I have to admit that it has been difficult getting into the studio. This is the problem with studios being located by your house. You see other things that you neglect and say...Hey I have to do this and I need to do that...and then you never make it into the studio! Ahahahaha!!!
But I am trying! Have a great Monday everyone!
