I’m sure that the title of this piece confused a few folks at WisCon’s art show over Memorial Day weekend, with people wondering what the word meant and what language it was. Actually…it’s an acronym. I live with a big Danny Elfman fan and his compositions influenced this piece. Hence, the necklace was dubbed “Mystic Knights of The Oingo Boingo Outragous Shiny” or MKOTOBOS (no official affiliation or endorsement implied, obviously). This piece did sell at the convention.
Five turquoise dyed howlite skulls are combined with black and white swirl lampwork glass coin beads and scarlet resin roses, all linked in a rosary style chain. The piece closes with a silver plate toggle clasp that echoes the raised dot borders of the glass beads.
