sugar skull


Another large piece in the making. Inspired by Native American Squashblossom necklaces. Here I have all the metalwork done and the sugar skull pieced together.

street sign and noisemaker pieces setting in their places.



Finished! Iam really enjoying making chain now,wish I had more time before the Plaza art fair to get more made up. After this piece though Iam thinking I want to make a concha belt with the look of the links that have the street signs in them. The price of silver will definitely have to come down though before I start that project!

Is this destined for the Plaza? I hope so becoz I want to see it in person before it gets away! I LOVE it so much--especially all the work in the chain. It' wonderful. see you soon!

It will be at the Plaza art fair! and it's definitely one to see in person,the pic doesn't do it justice.
