Since a while now there has been a major Sugar Skull (chic) trend thingy going on! I always have been in love with (Mexican) sugar skulls (not the "Ed Hardy" tattoo-ish bull). WAY before this trend was even getting itself into the fashion market, I was already designing very big pieces of sugar skull jewelry (yes, since 2008, see pics below). I sold, but it wasn't a huge success unfortunately! Now this trend is really kicking in, I can't keep my eyes closed and watch celebrity fashion desingers get rich from something I actually started with years ago! So, I've decided to start re-designing my skull necklaces & bracelets. Just for the info: these skulls are MY DESIGNS, FROM MY OWN ORIGINAL PAITINGS, HAND PAINTED BY ME!!! Over the years I've made so many sugar skull paintings, I decided to mix them with my jewelry. I scanned my paintings and photo shopped the image to a small image that I use to make cute little skull charms from. At the moment I'm hand painting some cabochon pendant settings to use for my new Sugar Skull Pendant Necklaces. Can't wait to finish and show you guys! I'll be using a lot of neon and many, many, many bright colors! Hopefully (FINALLY) I will get some success with these designs. It's so rediculous how "famous fashion designers" have success so quickly with anything that they touch... and I have to work my ass off!! But well, in Holland we always say: "There has to be a difference, your day will come!"
Anyway, I did something wrong the first time, so it was necessary for me to re-design. I made the skulls smaller and printed them on high quality organic paper. I haven't processed them into jewelry yet, but withing a week I'll be back with the first necklaces!
