"The skulls have become a symbol to us of peace and communication as without communication there is war. My Foundation, 'Peace for the Children' inspired me to begin a collection of beaded skulls which is scattered throughout my house and most of the time you can catch me wearing an assortment of skull jewelry along with one of my personally designed statement shoes.”
