I adore Mexican sugar skulls. The vibrant colors are whimsical and fun, but the ability to embrace such a pivotal part of being human is what speaks to me most. Our bones are the building blocks of the human structure, and they are what we leave behind when we leave this plane. So, imagine my joy when I walked into a little bead shop in Hilo, Hawaii and saw these colorful calaveras (Spanish for skulls).
I've been carrying them around with me since that fateful day in December, and finally had an idea this morning for how I would like to play with them.

We’ll see how things turn out.
