The step by step tutorial for the bracelets is available here > Shambhala Bracelet Tutorial

I bought a large bag of these skull beads at a bead show a few year ago... Until last year I made some shambhala bracelets with them for in person fall shows. Last year, I designed the dancing skeleton charms, amulets, 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 skulls beads look like they are having a great time, they are laughing, I called them Calaveras Feliz or Happy Skulls. I hope you will check the online tutorial and make pieces for youself, your family, and friends for Dia De Los Muertos or Halloween, or any other day of the year! - Marion
