COMING SOON:  Dia De Los Muertos Skull Jewelry for Fall 2017 by BluKatDesign on Etsy


The festive colors of Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead always inspires me!

These sugar skull pendants are reversible so you are really two pendants in one and are so fun to wear!  The one-of-a-kind red flower above is a pendant made from recycled priority mailers that are painted then heated to form petals with a skull in the center. These skull pendants are great for every day but if you get dressed up for this festive occasion, you may want to check out my statement necklaces that are work in process using charms and beads I have collected over the years: (Click on photos to take you to my current Day of the Dead jewelry that is available now!)
