What started as a dream, a cause, and a tray of bracelets has grown into a family business. A creative graphic designer with a flair for art and jewelry making, Founder Heather Weikel always wanted to start her own business. In 2010, her first business, Kharma Collection, sold jewelry from small boutiques, hospital lobbies, and art festivals. Championing Scleroderma, a rare autoimmune disease, Heather created bracelets to raise awareness and funds for scleroderma related causes. Before long her tray of bracelets grew into an entire display of jewelry and unique wares. In 2012, she was invited by a friend to vend a tray of her popular Skully Kouture bracelets at a comic con. A new door opened and Skully Kouture was born.
As an admirer of folklore and a nature spirit at heart, some of her pieces are inspired by tales such as Vikings or enchanted by forests. Turn the page and you will see posh statement chokers or trendy threads for rock stars. With her love of history and all things ancient you will also find vintage pieces sprinkled about. Heather's eclectic style is what makes Skully Kouture so special.
Heather created a line of metaphysical jewelry to meet the increased need for healing and energy through holistic remedies. Her knowledge of natural stones and essential oils has influenced and inspired her lava stone jewelry designs. She loves the opportunity to help others find their inner harmony.
Skully is also a way for Heather to connect and collaborate with other artists and vendors, give back to the community, and honor the memory of her mother, Judy. Judy taught Heather that with courage, dedication and hard work your dreams can be made into a reality. Her dreams are finally being realized today through Skully Kouture. Along for the ride is her hubby Wayne, dad Ben, and friends Christine and Laurie. Without them and the continued support from her family, customers and other vendors, Skully would not be possible.
