Description

                    Handcrafted Mexican Sterling Silver Pendant-Brooch

This is a wonderful pendant-brooch with a "Dia de los Muertos" Motif. Many of you might heard about this special day in Mexican tradition, this is the equivalent of Halloween here in the USA. Our dia de los muertos is a prehispanic tradition that has survived for hundreds of years, it's a colorful, vibrant and full of music and dance celebration, where we remember and invite our deceased love ones to come and visit us one more time. We remember them and place an altar with things and foods that were their favorites. We visit the cementeries and bring flowers while we celebrate their lives and memories.

In a way, we laugh and represent death in a very humurous way. "Las Calaveras" or skeletons are traditional figures that cannot be absent in such an important day. They are dressed and represented in different aspects of life, but they are most of the time shown with traditional, ethnic outfits that represent our Mexican culture and folklore as living figures that remind us that life is beautiful and we should live it at its fullest. 

This specific silver piece not only has incredible details, it was completely handmade with great care. Nice combination of shapes and textures, as well as a wonderful contrast between the polished and oxidized silver metals. In one word, Excellent craftmanship.

Please take a look at the additional pics, for more details on this beautiful piece.
