Dia de los Muertos




Hola!  Loralee here for a visit and I've brought a couple of friends with me today!



A festive pair of earrings using lovely unglazed skullies from Gaea Handmade.  I gave her a rhinestone necklace and a hand carved, two-sided, mother-of-pearl, rose crown.  She is wearing the perfect party dress by Inviciti! Yes, the lady can dance, as her dress moves freely from side to side!


La Catrina






Bold, vibrant, primitive crosses by JoesphineBeads paired with hand carved bone skulls that are two sided.  I wanted to keep the continuity of the cross and skull, so I made a fabric wrapped neck piece, joining the two.  I really love the way it looks!

Las Almas




The components are two-sided or finished on the backs so it actually could be used as a second pair of earrings if you flip them on the ear-wire with a pair of pliers.  The backs of the crosses are a bronze metallic and are beautiful.



¡feliz día de los muertos!

    1. I have to agree with you, I dislike a huge percentage of the skull items I see nowadays. I like and use Gaea'a skulls often for their earthy quality. I tried to blend both the traditional with the modern elements with these earrings. I'm so happy you like them!
