Are you looking to celebrate Halloween or Día de Los Muertos? These are the perfect earrings for both holidays. The color scheme would work with any outfit you choose. Why not show your love for the Halloween by wearing these for the month of October.
While the holiday of Día de Los Muertos is rooted in the Catholic holidays of All Saint’s Day and All Hollow’s Day, the indigenous people of central and southern Mexico have adapted these traditions to include ancient Aztec beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones. The holidays celebrate the belief that the gates of heaven are opened on these dates to allow deceased loved ones to return and spend the day with their families. At midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children, known as Angelitos are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On this same day, small skulls are often placed on the offrenda (altar), representing the children who have passed. The following day, November 2, larger and more detailed skulls replace the smaller ones, representing the deceased adults who now come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.
These cute earrings are designed with Tierra Cast bead able hoops in bronze along with a Tierra Cast Día De Los Muertos Skull charm in gold plated. I have added O Beads of matte peridot vitrail color to the hoop along with a gold- filled French ear wire. The color of the o beads reminds me of the Fall season. I can see these earrings being one of your favorites to wear during the Fall. They are lightweight and easy to wear.
