Halloween Skull Earrings, Black White Quartz Rose Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with a hearty dose of spooky goodness, the one of a kind CALAVERAS handmade earrings are so much fun to wear for Halloween and Day of the Dead.  Definitely jewelry for the woman who loves unique black and white designs, the earrings were created with artisan ceramic skull dangles, clear quartz gemstones and black roses.  Each ceramic dangle features a full skull in the middle with partial skulls surrounding it.  The matte white skulls are raised against the shiny faded black glazed background, providing eye-catching texture and details.  Because the dangles are individually handmade, they are similar in design but are also different.  The sides and back of each skull dangle is  also glazed in a shiny faded black glaze.
To perfectly complement the skull dangles, faceted clear quartz nuggets and black roses were used.  The long faceted, clear quartz nuggets are stunning, AAA quality so they catch the light and sparkle at every movement of the head.  Being long faceted nuggets, they are similar in shape and size but are also a bit different.  A copper disc spacer caps the top and bottom of each nugget.  The black roses were created from reconstituted black onyx, black onyx that was ground up, added to an epoxy and molded into a rose shape.  The roses are shiny and have amazing detail.  To finish the earrings, sterling silver French hooks with copper bead accents were used.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the fun CALAVERAS earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who adores unique skull jewelry - not just for Halloween and Day of the Dead, but also all year long!  “Calaveras” is Spanish for “skulls.”

Skulls are believed to ward off evil and assure protection and well being.  Ceramic is said to help with positive decision making.  Quartz is seen as the universal healing stone and promotes hope, happiness and optimism while awakening us to the beauty of nature.  Black Onyx is believed to be a powerful protective stone and brings balance to mind and body.  Copper is used to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The CALAVERAS skull earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
