Are sugar skulls evil?

Sugar skulls are often used to decorate the gravestones of the deceased.  While some people dread it because they often associate it with the emergence of all things evil, others consider it as a celebration for the life of their deceased ancestors and loved ones.

HERE’S ONE THING we know: Día de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is not a Mexican version of Halloween. Though related, the two annual events differ greatly in traditions and tone. Whereas Halloween is a dark night of terror and mischief, Day of the Dead festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy. Sure, the theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members. In towns and cities throughout Mexico, revelers don funky makeup and costumes, hold parades and parties, sing and dance, and make offerings to lost loved ones.

Day of the Dead originated several thousand years ago with the Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people, who considered mourning the dead disrespectful. For these pre-Hispanic cultures, death was a natural phase in life’s long continuum. The dead were still members of the community, kept alive in memory and spirit—and during Día de Los Muertos, they temporarily returned to Earth. Today’s Día de Los Muertos celebration is a mash-up of pre-Hispanic religious rites and Christian feasts. It takes place on November 1 and 2—All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day on the Catholic calendar—around the time of the fall maize harvest.


Oh my goodness, I love the purple sugar skulls and happened to find a perfect Czech rondel beads to match. Of course, I added Swarovski crystal beads to enhance the look and shine the earrings have. The gold-plated head pins have been wire wrapped for added security. To finished these Halloween earrings I have paired them with gold-filled French ear wires.

Materials:
- 20x17mm Czech glass Purple Opaline with Turquoise Wash. The skull beads have an engraved sugar skull face with turquoise accent color to highlight the features.
- 7x5mm Czech glass rondel beads with turquoise, purple, and tanzanite mix with bronze
- Swarovski lilac shadow crystal beads.
- Gold plated rondel beads.
- Gold-plated head pins.
- Gold -filled French ear wires.

Size: 2 inches long. They are very lightweight and dangle nicely.

A great gift for a friend or anyone who loves sugar skulls. Just a side note: I made a pair of these earrings for my Granddaughter,  She and her friends love them.
