For the past year I’ve mostly posted small, hand-made accordian books at my Etsy website, and have sold out of all but one of them. Recently, I had an itch to make earrings since I’d been accumulating some interesting beads, including skull beads. The Facebook response to a photo with those skull earrings, including a link to my Etsy site, made me realize there might be a niche market for skull bead jewelry. Who knew? So I’ve posted two more styles of skull earrings (both have options for variations) to my Etsy site. But then again, it might just be a fluke.
Still, just in case someone reading this blog post wants to check out my Etsy site, where I’ve included detailed descriptions of the earring materials, you can go to:

I’m going to post an image of a recent perforated sheet of artistamps I made because it also involves SKULLS. (I’ll even post it for sale at my Etsy site, Elliott Jenkins… HA!) NOTE: The “O cents” refers to “non-sense”…

2017 ADDENDUM: All skull earrings were sold! Artistamp sheets did NOT SELL so I took them off of the Etsy site. I continue to create artistamp editions which I send out as mailart. I give one signed copy of every edition of my small handmade books and artistamps to John M. Bennett for OSU Avant Writing Collection.

Inspired by Wilma Duguay, the title of this piece could as well be “piss offering”. CMB tied alpha beads to purchased macraméd PEACE symbol necklace. Another version, with beads sewn on with thread instead of being tied on with black cord, was mailed on behalf of Wilma to Cecil Touchon, to whom Wilma addressed the phrase “Piss Up a Rope” – twice – during a Facebook discussion fomented by Mark Bloch (who else?).
