A beautifully carved labradorite skull is the focal piece for this bookmark; such incredible detail was crafted into this cabochon. I added a large cubic zirconia as an eyepatch to accent the detailed facial features, giving the skull a rakish pirate look.
I wove this design with four different weave patterns, which add texture and contrast.
I oxidized the copper to an exquisite patina, adding depth and contrast of color in the metal. I then tumbled the bookmark with steel shot; this strengthens the piece and adds a high gloss to the copper.
One of my favorite features of the bookmark is the swirls that grace the end.
