I love the creativity when it comes to Dia de Los Muertos jewelry DIYs, here are some of my favorite tutorials! Dia de los Muertos has become more than a once-a-year event here in the U.S., I love that people take the meaning to heart and learn about the history. Every day I meet and hear from people who embrace the tradition (here’s where you can learn all about it!).
It’s not just about cute sugar skulls – these calacas have a special message that showcases the cycle of life. Sugar for the sweetness of living and a skull to accept death as part of our life’s journey. These jewelry projects represent that in the most beautiful way.
Do me a favor and if you decide to make any of these and you receive compliments – make sure to explain the meaning behind them! Pay the knowledge forward! xoxoxox!!!!

This is pretty darn mind blowing! This image has a link to buy these skull bisque blanks but it no longer works. You know what though? How about we just make these from clay and go from there? Talk about inspiration! Um, YES!
you can use this pattern to make more than earrings!
