Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry:
I am not there, I did not die.

The four Day of the Dead necklaces pictured here are offered individually, as priced below. Teal with copper metallic is SOLD. Please let me know which of the others (baby blue with pink metallic, bright red with blue, smaller white baby skull) you would like. Each necklace features gorgeous glass Czech focal sugar-skull bead, with a Frida Kahlo floral crown, surrounded by a mosaic of tiny beads and sparkles, both vintage and new. Brass or silver heart charm is a little over 2″ long x a little over 1″ wide, so quite small. My default chain is a nice 24″ brass or black chain with lobster claw clasp; I can reduce (but not lengthen) to your specification. I do recommend wearing these shorter, upon the flat part of your chest, due to some level of fragility. Although the pieces are extremely stable in their creation, they will break or fall apart if dropped or banged hard. So no slam dancing while wearing.
Each is one of a kind, ready to ship.
