The items in CarmelaJay's shop are inspired by the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Celebrated on November 1st and 2nd, it is a tradition to remember and celebrate the lives of those precious family members who have passed. It is often misunderstood, and thought to be gruesome or scary, when it's just the opposite. A beautiful ceremony to honor those that came before them.

I don't really know too much about the significance of the decorated skulls or the sacred hearts, but I recognize their beauty. CarmelaJay presents these pieces so beautifully that it makes me want to learn more about the history.

Plus.... They're SPARKLY!!!
