Celebration of Lost Loved Ones


Day of the Dead { Spanish: Dia los Muertos } which is celebrated in Mexico on November 2nd.
This bracelet is my way of celebrating my dad, grandpa and grandma who have passed away. The bracelet contains little charms that serve as remembered times for me, while they were alive. I celebrate their lives through this bracelet I made it as a rememberance to all of them. It was kind of hard to find just all the right items to make it. I wanted it to be very colorful.
A seashell for my dad since he served in the South Pacific during World War II. A very tiny lock and key since grandpa gave me a really small padlock and key when was a kid. Colorful flower beads for grandma since she made beautiful flowers from colorful paper!
