Embellished Skull 2
Hand-embellished beaded and gilded found skull by Holly Warnes.
In a glass and wood bell jar which measures approximately 23cm in height with a 12.5cm diameter.
Holly describes these pieces, "I have always found beauty to be most affecting when it reveals itself in unexpected places. Drawn towards melancholy, as a child I made deathbeds of petals and moss for fallen birds and collected butterfly wings and dead shrews in matchboxes. I see my work with jewel and bone as a progression of this fascination with beauty in the macabre.
I make every effort to source skulls ethically but more often they are found or donated."
Every piece is completely unique.
