Ukranian artist Christina Sivenko’s beads are small masterpieces in brass. The dwarf bead was my first bead of hers. The recently acquired bead shown here depicts a skull with two crossed knives. The skull wears an ushanka, a Russian style fur cap with ear flaps.

The 6 millimeter hole fits two strands of 550 paracord.
