In Latin America, especially southern Mexico, sugar skulls (calaveras) have been part of this ancient tradition since the late 1700s. Artisan candy makers spend their summers making colorful and intricate sugar skulls to adorn home altars honoring the dead. Far beyond one holiday, the sugar skull image has become an iconic symbol of vibrant Latino cultures.
This exquisite 20x12x1mm skull charm is cast in .925 sterling silver. It pays homage to Dia de los Muertos and the enduring love of family and home. Pair with colorful gemstones for fun earrings, dangle them across the front of a necklace design, or group them to tinkle together like bells on bracelets.
Design on one side only, and oxidized to show the two-layered pierced design. Length measure includes the 5mm soldered jump ring.
