This unique charm necklace is influenced by the Mexican Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos on November 1st, where people celebrate the lives of and pay their respects to deceased friends and family members. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honouring the deceased using sugar skulls and marigolds and the favourite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. This is a colourful celebration and not a sombre occasion!
This long beaded necklace features interlinked imitation turquoise coloured skull beads, millefiori glass beads with tiny colourful flower designs, silver metal beads and yellow acrylic faceted beads. At regular intervals hang little antique silver colour metal skull charms.
The necklace measures approximately 26 inches/65cm long and is one continuous length with no clasp.
