CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
The Catrina is one of the symbols of the day of the dead in Mexico. Just like sugar skulls, the human size skeletons made of papier maché decorate the streets or shops to remember this tradition during this holiday period. Unlike Europe, Mexico celebrates its ancestors and wants this day to be a happy memory, not a macabre one.
These sterling silver earrings were engraved with a modern skull pattern. You will find some flowers which are typical in the decoration of skeletons.
Length: about 4cm.
Metal: sterling silver.
You have the possibility of changing the classical sterling silver eawires by sterling silver clips for non pierced ears.
Please check the last photo to see the clips or you can also check our page about non pierced ears.
As we currently dwell in Mexico, provide a period of 2 to 5 weeks to receive your order. Thank you for taking this information into account before ordering in our shop (please, read the complete conditions of shipping here).

I hope you will love this jewel as much as I enjoyed creating it.
