Dia de los Meurtos Preparation!

Everyone get ready-
It's the 1st Annual Dia de Los Muertos processional and festival this year in Ft Lauderdale!! I am now making necklaces, jewelry, skull masks, notecards, greeting cards and more! This necklace was made from black lace applique, stone skull beads and crystal rondelles. The focal point(Muertos skull image) is made from Mica, hand-stamped with a deep purple ink and accented with Swarovski eyes!
I can hardly wait- get your order in early!

New Creations

Here is a custom necklace I created for someone on Swap-bot. It had to incorporate a vintage "Frozen Charlotte" doll. These little dolls are the origin of the baby doll. From Germany(late 1800's), these little bisque dolls were originally placed in your teas to keep it warm. The first dolls were all white(like this one) then later they started using color for hair and make-up, then eventually making them with movable arms and legs. I make these one of a kind doll necklaces in any length or style. This one is an eclectic mix using different chains, pieces of vintage chandelier crystals, and glass czech beads.
Hope you love it/ her :-)
