Read an Excerpt

Skulls, skulls, skulls—they are everywhere! Of course, I first saw them on Johnny Depp—I love to see what he is wearing on a TV show, movie, walking down the street—in my dreams!

I guess I had been collecting for about ten to fifteen years when I first decided I wanted to do a book on skulls. My first skull was a bracelet, then a belt buckle, a ring, and on and on. I only collect “happy skulls”—no depressing ones for me.

When did skulls become art? Apparently, collecting skulls has been going on for quite some time. I have been surprised at how many collectors there are and who does collect skulls. They are quite the conversation piece, just like crosses or turquoise.

Skulls are on tennis shoes, bracelets, scarves, rings, necklaces, pendants, etc. Lately children's clothes have put a broad smile on my face. One of my favorites is a turquoise skull from Doug Magnus. It was a ring, but I asked him to convert it to a pendant. I wear it almost every day!
