Darkmoon Fayre

Gothic Day of the Dead Earrings with a Pyrite Carved Skull and Hematite Dangles. Día de los Muertos.


A wonderful dark Gothic creation for the gorgeous Goth or Vintage Vixens, made from semi-precious Pyrite and Hematite. The gunmetal shine of the Hematite and Pyrite perfectly complements the silver tone Tibetan Silver and vintage fluted metal beads. The focal piece of the earrings are a spooky carved Pyrite skull with a wonderful Hematite dangle to finish it off. It has a delicious Film Noir feel about it.


The Pyrite carved skull is the symbol for the celebration of The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos), it is a holiday celebrated in many parts of the world, which directs honour and reverence towards loved ones and ancient ancestors.


The name Hematite is derived from the Ancient Greek word for blood because a powdered form of Hematite can be red, as used in early forms of rouge/blusher. Hematite grounds and protects us. It strengthens our connection with the earth, making us feel safe and secure. It endows us with courage, strength, endurance and vitality. A "stone for the mind", Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought.
