I never thought I would ever design a skull... let alone enjoy the process!!! But when I thought about how I like to decorate at Halloween it became inevitable! I like to use decorative items that have an inherent beauty and quality to them, not throw away or easily disposed of so, I decided to create these skulls in capiz shell. I am not a huge fan of orange and black - so I loved using beautiful colours that will work in my home at Halloween and all year round. And the trifecta with the matching pumpkins is the easiest way to signal we have a change in season!
I grew up in the Philippines and capiz was used in so many decorative objects. I adore the subtle luster and the way it throws colours is just stunning.
