The annual Mexican celebration, Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a time when families gather to honor and remember deceased loved ones. It is believed that the souls of the dead return to visit the living families in homes, businesses and cemeteries. The Aztec honored their dead with fiestas and rituals during the harvest season. They viewed death as the beginning of the cycle of seasons and life.
Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry, which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses the wire hardens and is sometimes hammered to further strengthen a piece. It will retain its shape, however, if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket.
