What better way to start the year than by donning a skull ring. Ok wait there are a few other things that are better. This black crowned skull ring with rhinestones can be bought from No Fashion Way (get it?) for a total of €9.
Ok if you are like me and have no idea what the title of this piece means then read below. Ferrofluid is a liquid that becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field (Wiki). When this field is turned on it makes the fluid react as if being compelled by an unseen force. Wait, that’s what a magnetic field is. Alessandro Brighetti decided to add a skull to the mix and this is what he achieved.

These lovely, shiny and oh so large carved skulls are created by Thought and Memory and are sold on a first come, first serve basis and on that note of course they are sold out. Man, that Jaguar skull is amazingly carved from obsidian and based on a real casting of a Jaguar skull.
There is also a variety of carved Wolf skulls that look long, sleek and wicked. There is one caved from obsidian like the Jaguar skull but there are also versions carved from Brazilian Agate and Carnelian Agate.
They are beautiful.
These evil looking skateboard skulls were created by Beto Janz as a way of spreading the word of a skate shop called Ultra Skate that he was promoting. Yes it’s advertsing but we do a similar thing with Mr Four Fingers in our own Left and Found Art. I would have loved to find one of these skateboard skulls.
Upon finding an article at Inhabitat about these skateboard skulls I looked at Beto Janz portfolio and was happy to find yet more skulls. Yaassss.

Found this simply intricate (yes that’s what I said) maze-like skull on Baubauhaus, created by Partel Oliva. Not sure what it was for as a tried checking out Partel’s website only to find information on wedding decorations.
I you love skulls then chances are you will have heard of Paul Alexander Thornton. His work is some of the best ballpoint pen action you will see and often his work has ink splashes and stains that add warmth, texture and life to many of his pieces.
Check out his Facebook profile as he updates quite regularly.
Now this is what I call a lavish collection of skulls. The cheapest skull you can purchase on Lion and Sons * is the Original Skull in Black/White at a solid $12,500 (no gemstones) and goes all the way up to the Divora Skull in yellow gold with white sapphires at a cool $34,000.
I wonder if you can add a lightbulb to these and turn them into ludicrously posh desk lamps. Though it might look a little out of place on my cluttered desk among ink pots and stained coffee mugs.
* UPDATE – Lions and Sons does not seem to exist anymore.
I’m in no way condoning the use of speakers in crammed public spaces like trains and busses because that shit is just annoying.. But if you insist or are bombing about town on your bike then you might as well rock out with one of these portable skull speakers by Boom Botix. They have a mad array of choices and prices range from $45 to $75.
