Grand Finale of FUN Celebratory Beads & Charms

As promised...many more fun beads and charms!! These will make for a fabulously interesting and unusual charm bracelet, I can't wait to play with them!!

Thanks to Susan Roper of "Watercolors by Susan Roper" for her informational comment on yesterday's post as follows:

"I think these were probably intended for the Mexican "Dia del Muerto" as many of the items bought for this celebration are of skeletons. On this day, they honor the dead and celebrate the lives of those who have passed. I have seen large cakes decorated with skeletons and all sorts of party decorations using them."

How wonderful to use these to honor and celebrate the lives of those who have passed!! They certainly make me feel spirited and happy!

I just couldn't help but become drawn to the "TierraCast® calavera sugar skull charms". To me, these smiling skulls with flowery eyes make me think they are having a moment of flower power and saying "peace"!

These maraca playing characters in hats, which are TierraCast® catrina charms, just make me laugh and the handmade lampwork calaveras flower skull beads above bring in some great color.

So, one more time, THANKS RINGS & THINGS for this fun-filled package of cheer! I love it!

These charms are just too cute Lisa! They would go wonderfully with my Pirate Beads. I love it they look so happy rather than creepy or spooky. Would be really fun to wear and you wouldn't have to worry about frightening small children when you have it on! :-)
