Petal Cove's First Pair of Hair Sticks!!!

I had been meaning to create a pair of hair sticks for some time, but the last time I attempted it, I got a little frustrated and put it on hold. I was in an experimental mood the other day, so decided to give it another shot, and I'm pretty stoked on how they came out! Just in time for the Day of the Dead, also!

The flowers were made from the same cane I created for the translucent leaves necklace in my shop!

I sculpted and painted each skull by hand and the sticks are decorated with gold leaf. I must say, they are pretty unusual... just the way I like it!

Day of the Dead Riverside!!

Petal Cove is proud to be a vendor at the Dia de los Muertos event in historic downtown Riverside on November 2nd from 6-9! Admission is free and last year was soooo much fun!

Come check it out, and be sure to stop by my booth! Also, I highly recommend getting there pretty early. Last year it got really crowded, really fast, and getting a good parking spot was already a challenge when 6 pm rolled around.

You can look forward to amazing dance performances, all sorts of amazing altars and art, and if you're into people watching there will be plenty of people in the craziest Day of the Dead ensembles roaming around with their faces painted like sugar skulls.

The event is hosted by Division 9 Gallery, which is an amazing place! If you're ever in the Riverside area you should definitely check them out.

In preparation for this fantastic event, I have been working on some very special pieces. I'll be posting some new bad boys soon. Hope to see you there!
