Stunning Skulls Carved Into Pearls by Shinji Nakaba


Japenese artist Shinji Nakaba creates stunning jewelry using unconventional materials to create his pieces.

His latest works, featuring intricately carved pearl skulls, are an example of his exceptional work. According to Shinji: “I just want to bring brand new life to something that has no value,” Nakaba tells Magnifico. “I use not only precious metals and stones, but also everyday things, such as aluminum beer cans, plastic bottle, or even garbage”.
