Rescued Sweater Sugar Skull Brooch
What do you do with worn out, holey wool sweaters?
These are some of the most creative & unique folk art I've ever seen! A favorite of mine. Made by a California artist who spends countless hours hunting in thrift shops all over California for 100% wool sweaters. She adopts them, felts them and then uses their patterns to collage & sew them into these catrina sugar skull which are absolute treasures!
Pin them to your blazer, jacket, backpack or anything that needs a piece of artwork. The needlework details give extra pizazz. Assorted colors. 3" x 4 1/2"

Day of the Dead falls on the weekend in 2014 - Be prepared for DoD-themed weddings! My Puebla artists are totally insane to make these ultra mini bride & groom earrings!

Sugar skull lovers appreciate & collect all kinds of Mexican symbology - the flaming heart is one of the favorites. The origin of the flaming heart goes back to the 16th century when the design was brought to Mexico by the Spanish Church to decorate the side altars & saints. It's now a favorite Mexican icon that shows up in milagros, artwork & popular folk art.

Filigree is the French style of bending wire into scrolly frilly designs that fill a perimeter. These expertly bent sterling wires are soldered to hold together. Filigree was a popular technique in the 19th century and it comes and goes in mainstream fashion. I marvel at how hard it is to do and am thankful that Mexican silversmiths still have some old guy on staff that continues to keep this tradition alive. Sterling silver, 3/4" x 1" long. Mexico
