I love it!

Will it stay in while you are riding with a half helmet on your way down to Daytona?

The bone skull bead in my beard can handle it, I was riding around with it a few days ago. The vertebrae might, I use tighter copper rings under the looser skull beads to keep them in place.

It was about a week ago I came up with the idea. This was one of the first, antler, gator teeth and skull bead.

I like it.  It will look good under a half helmet, but I have to be honest.  It doesn't have quite the same panache as the vertebra setup.  That one is just awesome.

Yeah, I agree. I picked up 6 or so of the vertebrae at the rendezvous in Jan. I was thinking scarf slides at the time.

When I first came up with the idea I couldn't keep a straight face. My runway strip debut was Walmart. I knew how totally ridiculous it looked but I was bound to see it through. I know a couple of venues where they would go over well, like Daytona Bike Week, Sturgis, St.Augustine Pirate Festival etc.

This may be one of my more bizarre ideas. I've gotten a lot of comments, strange looks and have even been stopped in parking lots with inquiries of where I got it.

Usually I just have the one skull and copper ring.

I tried to think of something to post to give you some $()it about this this morning.  Fail.
Went mountain biking and thought some more.  Fail.
It just begs to be pocket trade items at so many meets.

Man that looks amazing. I wish I had the artistic ability to come up with and create things like this when I see them.

The first one with the vertebrae looks like the angel of death.  Neat if you got a long enough beard.   >:D

I'm honored this tacky art thread was your first post. "o) Welcome to B&B

Cool!

It looks way better than the 2 inch holes kids are getting in their earlobes now. :D

My doctor looks like the main character in the Vikings TV show when he grows a beard. If he shaved his head the resemblance would be uncanny.

Yeah, but how long did it take to stuff your beard through the little holes?  Have you now crossed into the realm of "We're waiting on Mike to accessorize?"
