Catrina Day of the Dead Earrings-Handcrafted Sterling Silver
While the Day of the Dead celebration comes from Mexico, these handcrafted earrings are made in the U.S.A. by artist M. Balen. First the image is cut from sterling silver sheets, then the details are stamped and carved by hand. The background on the piece is created by over 50 perfectly aimed hammer hits onto a metal design stamp. This line of jewelry is made of hearty sterling but is lightweight. Superior craftsmanship, the ear wires are handcrafted of sterling silver also. Two other styles in this series are also available.
