Sugar Skull Earrings, Halloween Day of the Dead Black Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Full of spectacular spooky fun, the unique BLACK SUGAR SKULLS earrings are perfect for Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) festivities, Halloween parties . . . or for any time of the year you feel the need to wear trendy skull jewelry!  The one of a kind earrings feature two-sided black and silver Czech glass skull beads and two types of glittering Swarovski crystals.  The unique skull beads were created with a base of opaque jet black glass.  Impressed into both sides of the beads is a charming, rustic sugar skull design with floral eyes, a huge grin and an upside down triangle-shaped nose. To add an aged look and to bring out the details, the glass beads were coated with a silver metallic Picasso finish which settled into the recessed skulls design and the “crackles” and “pits” (that don't disturb the integrity of the glass), giving a subtle shimmer.  given a shimmering matte, sea glass tumbled look with some).  As you can see in the photos, the skulls are a bit different on each side. Since the black and silver sugar skulls are two sided, the earrings look beautiful from any angle when worn.  
 
All Halloween / Day of the Dead sugar skulls need a lot of sparkle so two types and colors of faceted Swarovski crystals were used.  Just above the sugar skulls, resembling a crown, are glittering clear Swarovski crystals with a rainbow aurora borealis (AB) finish set in silver plated rondelles.  The seven crystals might be on the smaller side, but do they ever radiate a palette of shifting colors sparkle at each movement of the earrings!  To add even more exquisite sparkle, a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a rich dark gray, called black diamond, is snuggled into the top of each rondelle.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the earrings.  The BLACK SUGAR SKULLS earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who wants to add ghoulishly fun Halloween and Day of the Dead earrings to her unique skull jewelry collection.

Skulls are believed to ward off evil and assure protection and well being.  Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

 
The BLACK SUGAR SKULLS glass and crystal 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!
