Muertos Jewelry ideas

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!!!!
