Kitsch and Quirky Gothic style Sugar Skull Earrings for Stretched Ears. Black and Copper Matte Glass Skulls. Hand-forged Pure Bare Copper Ear-Wires. Calavera, Day of The Dead. Perfect for Halloween parties.
I have deigned these earrings to look fabulous when worn through gauged tunnels/stretched ears (tunnels not included).
It is also safe wear Copper through bare fully healed ears, but please be aware that pure bare Copper may react with some peoples skin (depending on your skin Ph level) to create a green patina on your skin (which is not harmful).

*The ear-wires/hoops are entirely hand made from pure bare Copper hoops 2mm/12gauge (or Aluminium for the silver versions). The wires are lightly hammer textured for a rustic look.
*The skulls are made from moulded/pressed matte glass, which are highlighted with a copper patina to bring out the patterns on the skulls.
*********************************************************

✩The Calavera Skull✩
The 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 flowers that surround the eyes – these symbolise life, whereas the forehead cobweb pattern symbolises death. Therefore, the meaning behind sugar skulls is often complex — death is represented as a new start or a type of rebirth.

✩Variations✩
*I'm also happy to make this design in wires suitable to be worn through regular/normal piercings or made with a non-pierced clip-on ear finding.
*Please message me if you are interested in any variations/single earrings etc. I'm always happy to custom make to your requirements.

Jewellery: Care Instructions

Jewellery should be the last thing you put on the first thing you take off.
Always avoid getting hair products, perfume or chemicals (chemicals can include household cleaning products, some foods such as Lemons or vinegar)
General Advice:
Any metal be-it Sterling Silver, base metals or plated alloys can become dull or tarnished. As a general rule don't get it wet, if you do, dry and polish with a soft cloth. If it goes dull or tarnished, a gentle polish with a non-abrasive Silver cloth will bring it's lustre back. Gems or beads can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth to restore their original lustre.
Certain precious or semi-precious stone may require special care, I will include the information in the items full description or care leaflet.
