Dia del muerte

I made this using a leather cuff blank and adhered the pieces with an epoxy.

I bought a few of these blanks with the intent to make art.

This concept was illustrated over the course of several days where it just kept evolving layer after layer.

For instance, the last “layer” was the gold metal “ribbon”.

I could have added more things but I wanted the concept of Finite Time (watch day of the month dial) to be visible as the foundation instead of being occluded by the additions.

  • A great design for a Day of the Dead bracelet, Chris! I like how you layered the design elements used for Day of the Dead skulls. A fabulous one-of-a-kind.

    Absolutely LOVE your beautifully eye catching cuff. So colorful, and with so many elements, it’s something I would wear year round.
