Japanese Artist Carves Pearls Into Skull Jewelry

 

With a high level of creativity and excellent practice, the Filipino artist based in New Jersey, Gregory Halili, has created the mother of pearl shells on delicate skulls using subtle oil paints and carefully used oil paint. Gregory carves the skulls and transforms them into black and gold gradient mother of pearl shells like the ones in Philippines and he uses the oil paint cleverly, due to which people are unable to differentiate between the oil paint and the natural nacre of the skull. Known for his ultra-detailed and minutely crafted art, you can have a look at his work by scrolling down. More info : work.s-nakaba.com | Etsy  (h/t: magnifeco)
