Pair Of Southwestern Dragon Skull Leather Masks by merimask Pair Of Southwestern Dragon Skull Leather Masks by merimask
I just finished these new dragon skull masks last night. The patterns look sort of "Southwest" to me so that's what I'm calling them. :) The one on the left has a stone called "hickoryite" inlaid in the forehead...I love it because it reminds me of the desert. The one on the right is turquoise of course.

Made entirely by hand, entirely by me. Leather, acrylic paint, stones, love.

Hickoryite is a type of rhyolite (I think I saw somebody ask that, but comments are messed up for me).

Very interesting idea :)

Beautiful work and what a great idea!

(I get lots of beads from Fire Mountain Gems. Their catalogs are stuffed full of mesmerizing eye-candy, lol!)

The style works very well with them. They'd look awesome just hanging on the wall!

Thank you! I think so too. :) They're actually pretty intimidating when you wear them...scary!

Gaaah, I love your skull masks. They always look so wonderfully textured. The addition of the stones is wonderful, too. I've never heard of hickoryite, but I'll have to add it to my collection at some point, it's lovely.

Thanks! I got my cabochons from Fire Mountain Gems...I'd never heard of hickoryite either but it's awfully pretty.

Yeah, it's probably a new name for some kind of agate, but I like the stuff. :).

Yes...all one piece of leather except for the stone in the forehead.
