Sugar Skulls Earrings, Halloween Day of the Dead Gray Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with spectacular spooky fun, the one of a kind MEMENTO MORI sugar skull earrings are trendy for any time of the year, but especially perfect for Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations and Halloween party wear.  The handmade dangle earrings feature two-sided, rustic- look Czech glass sugar skull beads, copper Czech crystal rondelles and black Swarovski crystals with a rainbow effect.  The unique Czech beads were created with a base of gray glass with a sugar skull design pressed into both sides of the beads.  For an aged, folk art look, a black Picasso finish was added to highlight the incredible detailing of the floral eyes, the nose that is an inverted heart shape, mouth, eye brows, “crackles” and other parts of the skull beads.  Each side of the skulls is a bit different, as you can see in the photos. Because the sugar skull earrings are two sided, they look wonderful from any angle.
Stacked above the sugar skull beads are glittering Czech copper rondelles set with severn clear crystals.  The crystals seem as if they have their own light source - do they ever glitter.  Snugged into the top of each copper and crystal rondelle, adding even more eye-catching sparkle, is a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in “jet” black with an aurora borealis (AB) finish.  As the angle of the light changes, the AB finish acts like a prism, radiating out rainbow colors: gold, purples, blues, greens, aqua, orange and others.  Be sure to look at each photo and see how the colors change - amazing!  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the skull earrings professionally.  The MEMENTO MORI earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who wants to add ghoulishly fun jewelry to her unique skull collection.  “Memento Mori” is Latin for “remember death,” an important component of Dia de los Muertos celebrations.

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 MEMENTO MORI 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!
