This earrings are a tribute to Mictecacihuatl, the Aztec goddess of death. Highy detailed blackened brass hops are embossed with an abstract design, reminiscent of Aztec ornament, crowned with black resin skulls, crowned in deep gunmetal and hyacinth Swarovski Crystals. The earrings measure 2 3/4" long including nickel and lead free leverback ear wires. If you would like these changed to hypoallergenic niobium ear wires free of charge, just message me at checkout.
Mictecacihuatl was the Queen of Mictlan or the underworld, watcher of bones, swallower of stars. She presides over the Dia del los Muertos festivities.
