Pearls carved into tiny skulls by artist Shinji Nakaba. Shinji Nakaba, is a jewelry designer in Tokyo who chooses to make his work both unique and memorable.  He uses not only precious metals and stones but also unexpected sources such as that found in polyvinyl water pipes, iron bolts and the garbage. This trash, whether it be plastic bottles or fallen leaves, is then turned into treasure.  Each piece is a wearable sculpture.  Nakaba says “I just want to bring brand new life to something that has no value.”

This piece is one of my favorites in the entire ROM collection; ‘Dream Cloud’ is carved from one piece of boulder opal mined in Australia.  It’s an impressive piece, large enough to fill the palm of your hand.
