I've always liked creepy stuff. Vampires, Edgar Allan Poe, spiders, skulls and just macabre in general.
I was secretly hoping to meet a vampire boyfriend loooong before the Twilight sensation.
I took 'The Tell-Tale Heart' to bed with me as a kid. You know, for some light reading material.
I have a strict catch and release policy when it comes to spiders (no stomping them!)
And I've been drawing, wearing, and decorating with skulls since before I can remember.
So when Target started carrying skull socks, little froo froo dogs were sporting skull sweaters, and skulls popped up on bibs and diapers I realized skulls had officially hit mainstream.
I gotta say I was kind of bummed. My fear was that once the novelty wore off they would be seen as outdated and I would be like one of those people who still pegged their jeans in 1996 (we all know this went out of style at least by 1994).
But alas, I believe the skull is here to stay!
Thank God because lately that seems like all I've been making in my jewelry world.
