We will have a few more designs of this skull soon. It was quite an effort to come up with the designs and have this tool made. I really like how they came out and the details that we were able to produce. These are made by a special tool that is quite expensive. These are very unique and interesting and would make wonderful keychains, necklaces, bracelets and more. We can take the hanger part off for you if you like.
Here is one of the others we offer: https://www.etsy.com/listing/550658305/new-sugar-skull-calavera-pendant-lots-of
Dia de los Muertos was an Aztec ritual that celebrated the lives of those who have deceased. The Spaniards who invaded Mexico tried to eliminate this seemingly offensive month-long holiday with no success. Dia de los Muertos was eventually merged with the Catholic All-Saints day and All-Souls day on November 1st and 2nd in an effort to make the holiday more Christian.
Sugar art and Sugar Skulls dates back to the 17th century when Italian missionaries visited the New World. Mexicans during that time period had very little money and learned from the Catholic friars how to make decorations out of an ingredient they had plenty of--sugar.
