Catrina Skull - Monday's project

Catrina Skull Pendant by WinkArtisans

Wow, it was a crazy Monday, running around dropping off kids at camp, hubby sick with a summer cold at home and all I wanted to do was time for me to work on my Catrina pendant prototype.  Here's what I was able to accomplish today. 
My initial Catrina sketch inspired by Posada's original Catrina

Hand-stamped and oxidized

Background in copper, hand-cut, hand-stamped, oxidized and sealed

It's starting to take shape. 
Added small copper flowers and it is almost done. 
Some minor work tomorrow and it will be finished.


  1. WOW!! How cool is that!! I'm always fascinated by the process!

  2. i love this! what are the demensions?

  3. It measures 3.5 inches wide by 2.5 inches long. Truly a statement piece!
