Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life and death. We welcome back the souls of our beloved deceased family member. It is believed that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.
💀Sugar skulls or "calaveritas de azúcar." In 1947 artist Diego Rivera featured Posada’s adorned skeleton in his masterpiece mural “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park.” Posada’s skeletal bust was dressed in a large feminine hat (skeleton named Catrina). Today, the calavera Catrina, or elegant skull, is the Day of the Dead’s most ubiquitous symbol.

Copper is our oldest ore and occurs in pure form. Early Mesopotamians, Egyptians, and Native Americans prized the metal for its aesthetics, versatility, use in spiritual ceremonies, as well as for medical procedures.
Copper is an essential mineral that benefits bone, nerve, and skeletal health. Wearing copper jewelry has the benefit of slow copper absorption. It has been claimed that headache pain, arthritis, joint pain, and other deficiencies can be effectively treated with the aid of copper jewelry.
