Sugar Skulls Earrings, Flower Eyes Day of the Dead Halloween Jewelry

Item Description

If you are looking for a mega fun pair of handmade sugar skull earrings to wear for Halloween and Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos, then look no farther!  The WILD EYED SKULLS earrings are definitely the ones for you.  The unique earrings feature magnesite skulls inset with flower eyes, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver.  The smile inducing skulls are made of carved magnesite gemstones with a permanent turquoise dye.  As you can see, the color is a rich turquoise blue with natural veining that is brown.  What really catches the eye, however, are the wild looking flower eyes!  The five petalled flowers are artisan handmade from polymer clay.  The pink and white colors, with just a hint of blue around the center, pop against the turquoise color of the skulls - you can’t help but notice them!  The flowers were bonded to the eye holes of the skulls with industrial strength glue.  
Adding exquisite sparkle to each sugar skull earring are two faceted Swarovski crystal bicones in a color called “Indian pink.”  Reminiscent of the colors of pink gemstones found in India (pink spinels and pink sapphires, to name a few), the crystals are a dramatic translucent pink that glitter at each movement of the head when the earrings are worn.  The crystals are separated from each other and from the skulls by small sterling silver disc spacers.  All the elements used to create the sugar skull earrings were strung on sterling silver headpins, wire wrapped and then glued so the skulls always face forward.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the WILD EYED SKULLS are a wonderful jewelry gift for the woman who loves unique sugar skull earrings, not only to wear at Halloween and Day of the Dead, but also all year long.

Skulls are believed to ward off evil and assure protection and well being.  Magnesite is said to help turn dreams into realities; it instills peace during meditation.  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 WILD EYED SKULLS Day of the Dead 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!
