Día de los Muertos (Skull Earrings)

Living in Arizona which boarder Mexico, you get some of Mexican culture. I think The Day of The Dead is a beautiful celebration. It is a day to remember those who died and celebrate them.  Skulls are used a lot during this holiday. That is why I’m putting these yellow skull earring up today November 1st, the Day of the Dead. Learn a little more about Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead.)

Ghost Earrings

In time for Halloween, I made myself a pair of ghost earrings.

They are a little heavy, but since you only wear them for a few days in one month of a year, it’s worth it.

Maybe I should have added some fire and made a “Burning Ghost.”

Commissioned piece

A coworker saw one of my necklaces and commissioned this piece.

This bracelet caused me many issues. I first made it with just the large beads, but then it was very hard to put it on, the large bead stop the bar from going through the hole. I then tried it with a lobster clasp, but hated how it looked, so back to the toggle clasp. I found these small skulls and it worked, but it took a little more effort then my coworker liked. After this picture, I took off one of the small skulls and put on some seed bead so it would be easy to get the bar through the hole.

Sad to see it go, may have to make one for myself.
