Skull beads and skulls can symbolize many things, depending on the cultural heritage of the wearer and the way the skull is displayed. For instance, when used in prayer, it helps reassure the wearer, alleviating any fears they may have surrounding death. Skulls may also be worn with the intention of protecting the wearer from hidden dangers, hazards, or warnings. Many people wear skulls to remind them to live in the moment because we won’t be on Earth forever.
Our skull bead collection is prefect for anyone looking to create with or wear a meaningful symbol. Though there are various interpretations of the skulls featured on these beads, skulls are a universally beautiful and treasured feature for creative designs.
