Our Sugar Skull ornament is featured in a brilliant and vibrant bluegrass color, with the be kind message intertwined with the sugar skull details. Remember and celebrate your loved ones that have died, and/or gift a grieving friend with this beautiful and unique handcrafted ceramic wind chime.
The origin of the sugar skull ornament comes from Mexico, which borders the original Ben’s Bells location in Tucson, AZ. In Mexico, Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is celebrated each year on November 1st and 2nd.
During this time families gather together to remember loved ones they have lost. Stories and memories are shared in this magical celebration where it is believed you can reconnect with those who have passed. Altars known as ofrendas are created as a memorial with favorite items from their loved ones. Items include sugar skulls, marigold flowers, food, photos, and more.
Traditional sugar skulls are made from sugar and decorated with a loved one’s name, representing the departed soul. These beautiful, unique, intricate designs are a wonderful way to celebrate the memories of loved ones through art.
Today sugar skulls are recognized worldwide. People love to display the fun, colorful designs around their home and on their clothing.
