Fun Link Friday: Carved Pearl Skulls

We often feature unconventional artists and artwork for our Fun Link Fridays, and who can blame us? This week check out the artist Shinji Nakaba, who was featured on Bored Panda for his fantastic work carving miniature skulls out of pearls with a truly amazing level of skill.

As Nakaba puts it on his Etsy page:

I am making jewelry from recognition as “wearable sculpture”

I use not only precious metals and stones but also something usual,such as aluminum Beer can or plastic bottle,or even some discarded materials.
I’m dealing all the materials equally no matter how precious or not precious they are.


You can see more on his website here or his Etsy page. The photos are amazing!
