About this design:

    Perfect Day of the Dead bracelet! Down here all by the Mexican border most of the Day of the Dead skulls are like the one on your bracelet. They come in many vibrant base colors with flowers and swirls.

    Oh my. What a brightly painted skull. Pretty and grim at the same time. Great for the holiday.

    What a bright and joyful bracelet! Love all of the colors. The sugar skull is as bright and joyful as the bracelet. Time to celebrate El Dia de los Muertos!

    Thanks for all your comments!! I don’t usually do holiday jewelry…but I couldn’t resist. I think it’s more fun to do Halloween jewelry than Christmas. But, I actually have a plan for a Christmas bracelet.

    Jane, if that skull was a big flower or a pearl I would love it. The day of the dead skulls creep me out ( but that’s why we do Halloween/ to get creeped out) haha!

    Pretty and grim at the same time is so true. Your bracelet fits right in with the tradition of the Day of the Dead holiday. I’m more familiar with the Halloween treatment of the scary skull.
