I bought a large bag of these skull beads at a bead show a few years ago... Initially, I made some shambhala bracelets with them for in-person fall shows. Later, I designed the dancing skeleton charms, amulets, and earrings and made the neckpiece for a Dia De Los Muertos exhibit at the Chico Art Center in California. The dancing skeletons are easy to make and fun to wear. The little skull beads look like they are having a great time; they are laughing. I call them Calaveras Feliz or Happy Skulls. Please check the online tutorial and make fun jewelry for yourself, your family, and your friends for Dia De Los Muertos, Halloween, or any other day of the year! - Marion
