My skull obsession continues!
I was strolling through a gem show, part curious and part expectant, as I had come across the announcement of this annual event in a rather synchronistic way. After a pretty quick scan (I’m choosy with jewelry and stones especially. They have to “scream at me” energetically or I’m not inclined to take them home) when my eye caught an unusual stand tucked away from the main drag and tended by the sweetest Tibetan lady and her gorgeous daughter. I was admiring her selection of astounding statement pieces and beginning to feel a sense of purpose for my unplanned visit, when I locked gaze with these stunning turquoise and brass multiple skull rings. My jaw literally dropped. I’d been looking for years for companion rings to my oversized turquoise bracelet (also featured here and here) and couldn’t have dreamt a more perfect match. And they came in triplets to boot. I was in skull ring heaven!
