Ofrenda necklace - Sophia Forero Designs

Ofrenda necklace

A festival of joy that welcomed spirits back into the living, Day of the Dead is a thousands year old tradition dating back to Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people, now located in Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Families joyfully decorate the graves of their loved ones, creating altars not for worshipping, but for welcoming them back in celebration, to reignite memories and rekindle spiritual connection.
