Show Me Sunday

One of my favorite spooky trends lately is the sugar skull image.  I love the mix of sweetness and creepiness, life and death imagery, with skulls and flowers in candy like colors.  This bead, part of a series of sugar skull lampwork beads by Linda Lawrence of Bella Bead Jewelry, is a great example of a colorful sugar skull bead.  Check out her Etsy shop to see more of her work.
