Calavera or Sugar Skull pendant made from high-quality white porcelain fired to 2345F. Use to make a necklace or part of a mosaic project!
This pendant has been hand formed by me in porcelain clay, painstakingly carved into a Sugar Skull, fired, then glazed with under and overglazes and bits of fine silver, then fired once again. the pendant has been glazed on one side only to show the beauty of the crystalline Porcelain that is unglazed.
The porcelain pendant measures 1 inch wide by 1-1/2 inches long by 1/4 inch thick ( 27mm x 39mm x 5mm).
**Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive. Colour intensity will vary from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
Calavera or Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls:
A Calavera (Spanish) is a representation of a human skull. The term is most often applied to decorative or edible skulls made (usually by hand) from either sugar (called Alfeñiques) or clay which are used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos cona ) and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls' Day. Calavera can also refer to any artistic representations of skulls, such as the lithographs of José Guadalupe Posada. The most widely known Calaveras are created with cane sugar and are decorated with items such as coloured foil, icing, beads, and feathers.
