Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead

This challenge inspired me to create a piece for Day of the Dead. A holiday that is very popular in Tucson, AZ where I live.

I used polymer clay, glass beads and some vintage jewelry odds and ends.

I am teaching a class in this next week called “Bringing your old jewelry back to life!”

So cool!
by: Lynda

This piece is so cool on so many levels with all the details involved. I just couldn’t take my eyes off it! Thanks for sharing it.


Day of the Dead bling
by: Rena

I agree with Lynda – love the way you handled the details – the “bling” version of flowers in the eye sockets, the beauty mark on the cheek, and the lipstick-red lips!

Also the dream-catcher hair ornament. Very cool.

I’m sure your students will love this class. 🙂

It’s gorgeous. Love all the bling and lipstick!

Great fun

I love your piece, she’s scary and soft at the same time. I especially love the lips.
