The passage of time...
The necklaces here are inspired by one of my favorite holidays, Dia De Los Muertos,Day of the Dead, and of course the fabulous Frida Kahlo. Day of the Dead is November 1st and 2nd, in accordance with the Catholic holidays, All Saints Day and All Souls Day. It is part of Mexican culture to honor and celebrate departed loved ones by praying and making altars honoring the dead with their favorite food and drinks, sugar skulls and marigolds.
These Frida necklaces were a special request from my good friend Sophia, owner of Make Good in South Park, 2207 Fern Street. You can find my work and the work of over 100 local artists there, where we will have a Dia De Los Muertos celebration Sunday, November 1st in the afternoon.
