Pink skeleton butterfly earrings. Near the top of my all time favorite earrings list. So much personality! They are dangling from the edge of a cherished Michael Corney porcelain skull mug. Viva los Muertos! #butterflyearrings #calacaearrings #diadelosmuertos #dayofthedeadjewelry #butterflies #audreyf #folkart #michaelcorneyskullcups #michaelcorney #michaelcorny
Mid October in upstate NY really is the new June. #autumnrose #fallflowers #uticany #happyday
The most familiar symbol of Dia de Los Muertos may be the calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls) which appear everywhere during the holiday. They are almost always portrayed as enjoying life, often in fancy clothes and entertaining situations. #nationalgeographic #diadelosmuertos #dayofthedead #calaca #calavera #skull #bobblehead

Those young skeleton gentlemen inspired these earrings. Black and bone with a pop of color! #dayofthedeadjewelry #dayofthedeadearrings #diadelosmuertos #caballeros #audreyfearrings #audreyf #tophat #skull #thecuriousbead
This is the black skunk bead version of the red ones I posted yesterday. I like the earrings but may love the photo even more. The skullies are cozying up to a carved antique mirror back. #skullearrings #molars #diadelosmuertos #dayofthedead #audreyfearrings #audreyf #thecuriousbead #tradebeads #eyebeads #skunkbeads
Love the rich autumnal hues of this vintage carnelian necklace. The stones are gorgeous, the construction is on the primitive side. Available at the Curious Bead on Etsy. #carneliannecklace #vintagecarnelian #indiacarnelian #thecuriousbead
Tres esqueleto caballero! These boys were contestants in a Dia de Los Muertos costume contest in Guanajuato. Did not see a single superhero or cartoon character. All the ninos were dressed as fancily attired skeletons. It was very moving.  #esqueleto #diadelosmuertos #costume #allsoulsday #niños #guanajuato #mexico
Day of the dead earrings made with antique African trade beads and clay skulls and teeth. The white dots on the beads are thought to represent eyes which have powers of protection.

Antique carved jade pendant and old chalcedony beads from China. The carved centerpiece is beautifully carved, quiet and perfect. #thecuriousbead #carvedjade #chalcedonybeads #chinesebeads #chinesenecklace #antiquechinese
Dia de Los Muertos quechquemitl made in 2016 by talented Julie Snediker. Julie designed and appliquéd the skull onto the traditional style poncho she made. The roses are dyed t-shirts her son had outgrown. A quechquemitl is a garment which has been worn by certain indigenous ethnicities in Mexico since the pre Hispanic period.

Dia de los Muertos is a  celebration of life. From an early age children in Mexico and Latin American countries are taught not to fear death so that they may appreciate and embrace life. I found this masterpiece of sculpted and painted clay in Guanajuato, Mexico. Wonderful that a macabre skull is crawling with humorous cartoon like insects.
