Halloween Skull Earrings, Day of the Dead Turquoise Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The CALAVERAS DE MIEDO handmade skull earrings are perfect jewelry to wear to Halloween parties and Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) festivities. Kind of spooky and 100% fun, the earrings were created with turquoise magnesite, Czech crystals and Swarovski crystals.  The highlight of the devilish earrings are the two-sided, grinning turquoise magnesite skulls. Magnesite is normally an off white gemstone with matrix, but since it takes a dye very easily, it can be found in a wide range of colors, turquoise being the most popular. The permanently dyed turquoise magnesite skulls are carved and show great texture.  A greying beige finish was added to bring out the details of the recessed areas and to add an aged look.  Because the skulls are two-sided, the Halloween earrings look fearsome from any angle.

Sitting on top of each skull are two types of sparkling crystals, almost like a crown.  Resting on the skulls is a copper rondelle set with seven clear Czech crystals.  These crystals might be on the smaller side but do they ever capture the light and sparkle.  As if the earrings needed even more sparkle, nestled into the top of each rondelle is a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone.  The rich color of the crystals is called “indicolite” named after a rare  blue tourmaline.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the spooky Halloween earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the CALAVERAS DE MIEDO skull earrings were created for the woman who loves devilishly fun skull earrings for Halloween and Day of the Dead . . . or for any time of the year!  “Calaveras de miedo” is Spanish for “scary skulls” or “skulls of fear.” 
***Please note:  in real life, the sterling silver earwires do have copper bead accents.  They were accidentally left off when the photos were taken, but the earwires now have copper beads.

Copper allows 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.
