"Dia de los Muertos" with Brass Skulls
Limited Edition #7/25
One-of-a-kind sterling cuff bracelet featuring a hand-carved and scrimshawed fossil ivory skull. Although these are in a limited edition, each one of these bracelets is uniquely different. The wide sterling bands of these cuffs provide a canvas for larger accents. In this case, I have used brass skulls that have been cut, pierced and stamped with decoration similar to the sugar skulls of Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mexico. The adornment around the ivory skull is primarily granulated silver stars af varying sizes, and brass stars, a trademark of my "Dia de los Muertos" line.
