The Dias de Los Muertas Necklace
by Neena Shilvock.
(Nuneaton, United Kingdom)
Inspired by Frida Kahlo and the Day of the Dead, this necklace has her ubiquitous flowers and ceramic sugar skulls imported from Peru.
Connecting these are garlands of leaves with stylized berries made of blue sun stone and pearls.
The necklace is made of copper and silver plated copper, and the handmade clasp is asymmetrical, with one arm longer than the other.
A carnival necklace with a surprise twist.
Wonderful. The colors are great and what a fun twist to add the Dawn of the Dead inspiration.
Dia de los muertos
Your Dia de Los Muertos (correct pronunciation) is absolutely beautiful…. love the sugar skulls. (calaveras de azucar)
Las Flores y el Dia de los Muertos
Your work is always stunning and unique, Neena! I love how you’ve used wire to sculpt the flowers and leaves – it really does have a Carnival look, and the decorated skulls are a perfect touch!
