Gregory Halili, a Philippines-born artist, has created this most beautiful series of carved pearl skulls. I think it works so well, not only because of the expert craftsmanship but also because pearls have a similar resemblance to bone so the skull actually looks like a skull. Funny that.
Above is a hand carved South Sea pearl in 18ct with white and natural coloured Diamonds custom made by Jewellers Workshop Gallery. I’ve also attached a pic of a heart pendent you may appreciate even though it isn’t skull related.
These are all custom made pieces so if you fancy something as cool as this, and unique then follow the links and get in touch with them.
First of all, apologies for not getting this post up sooner! I was away on holiday in Italy and didn’t have internet connection. But I’m back so no more late posts!
This Fossilised Coral Skull Pendant was sent to us by a friend of ours, Anna, who is a gem stone specialist. She recently found this beautiful skull pendant and shared it with us on Facebook.
The skull is fossilised coral and the eyes of the skull are very fine emeralds. On top sits a spider made of gold, with diamond legs and a Tahitian pearl for its body. It’s absolutely beautiful! Thanks Anna! We’ll also be doing a post soon of all the skulls you, our fans, have been sending us so watch this space!
