Pimp My Skull

Jeweled SkullHere’s an interesting project for the more obsessive amongst us: Bejeweled skulls.

Artist Amy Sarkisian apparently specializes in these; she’s got photos of several on her site. There isn’t any accompanying text to describe her method or what materials she uses, but I’m guessing “beads” and “glue” are the basics.

I have no idea if these were inspired by Damien Hirst’s diamond-encrusted skull or not, but it’s nice to see something similar done with more readily-accessible materials. If you’ve got a lot of beads, a dime store plastic skull, and some time on your hands, this would certainly be an unusual and striking accent piece.

Check out some of her other art too; it’s delightfully disturbing.
