GD Skulls Dress Up Your Knife

GD Skulls PirateGenadijs Dmitrijevs handcrafts his GD Skulls with Old World skill.  Each skull bead is made in his Latvia, Russia workshop from 925 silver and bronze.  The designs are intricate and beautiful.  GD feels his mixture of the two metals, done with foundry production methods, gives contrast and uniqueness to his beads.  Agreed.

For his most complicated beads, he utilizes the services of a miniaturist sculptor to expedite the finishing process and keep costs down.  GD is quick to distinguish his works from those of big production facilities.  His 18 years of experience making jewelry lead to individual pieces of art.
