Japanese Artist Carves Pearls Into Miniature Skulls

Since 1974, a Tokyo-based jewelry designer, Shinji Nakaba, uses unconventional materials to create his works of art. An example of his exceptional work is the carved pearl skulls. “I just want to bring brand new life to something that has no value,” said Nakaba.

He uses not only precious metals and stones, but also everyday things, such as plastic bottles and even garbage! See pictures of his rare carved pearl skulls.
