I am so over the moon excited about this little guy. The inspiration comes from my boyfriend's motorcycle club, The Blue Iron Motorcycle Club. A great organization that does great works all over town, be sure to check them out. Their logo has a blue skull in it and when I saw this, I knew I had to give it a try. This is a dark blue Swarovski crystal skull that I have worked onto a black cotton cord and added blue sodalite stones. The stones I use are genuine and the clasp is a VERY easy hinged hook clasp. I have had several people get back to me with reviews on this clasp and they are amazed at how easy they are to operate one handed. This is a 6 inch bracelet ( I can lengthen it).
