Needle Tatted Skulls

Jennifer Tallapaneni from Dallas, TX said: “When I recently learned how to needle tat I quickly found a way to include my love of skulls. Here are a couple items I made with different skull variations, a set of earrings and a cameo brooch.”

Fiber Arts are an area of art that still puts me in awe. You truly have talents that not everyone posses. I know these were not made for this purpose, but when I saw these pieces I was reminded of 19th century Mourning Jewelry. Granted the imagery of the skull would probably never have been used during that period, still as history moves along so to how we interpret things to meet our present needs so why couldn’t these be modern interpretations of the past. Thank You for submitting your excellent work, and I look forward to seeing more of it in the future.
