Handmade Skull Ponytail Holders by Michael R. Doyle of Moon Raven Designs Are Boo-tiful.

I came across these quite by accident and immediately fell in love with them. As a matter of fact, I had to buy one - and did. Beautifully rendered skulls hand cast in various materials are placed on elastic bands for use as pony tail holders. Available as yellow bronze, sterling silver plated white bronze, black resin, ivory resin and even a sugar skull version cast in oxidized sterling overlay on white bronze. Prices vary depending upon materials.

Oxidized Sterling over White Bronze:

A black resin Raven skull and sterling silver over white bronze T-Rex skull are also available:

The bands are easily replaceable (as one would not want to have to toss the piece of art when the elastic is stretched out).
