After resisting creating earrings for so long, it's a wonder to me that I am enjoying making them so much!  Here is the latest set of them for you to enjoy, all done up in cobalts. Very bright and eye-catching, these little devils are!

Speaking of devils, plenty of diablos and skulls were around this past weekend at the Day of the Dead Parade in Tucson, AZ, in which I was delighted to be a participant. The event draws nearly 100,000 people, half of whom walk, half who spectate. The 3 mile route is walked to celebrate one's ancestors and loved ones who have passed on. Whole families come out and parade with floats they have built, people carry mementos to honour their loved ones, folks amble on stilts or operate massive puppets. The sight of all of this is unbelievably moving, particularly when you factor in that the parade is managed without any corporate sponsorship.

In the spirit of things, I had my lovely friend Theresa paint my face, and walked for my Gramma.
