It started with the hand carved bovine bone square cut skull cameos. I hand cut, sculpted, sanded and filed the natural sleeping beauty turquoise stones to fit into the eyes. Since the skulls were carved entirely by hand they are slightly different from each other and I followed the eye shapes with the stones. I set a third eye into the foreheads that is a round cut natural Aquamarine. The oval cut set stones on top are also natural Aquamarines. The solid sterling silver has been oxidized to a deep gray. Skulls are so visually powerful and have many meanings: - To invoke fear or caution. - To celebrate the memory of the dead. - To celebrate life. - As a symbol of vanity. - As a symbol of life after death. - As a symbol of change. - As a means of obtaining good luck or avoiding bad luck. - As a symbol of toughness, machismo, courage, bravery or indifference to death and danger. - As a symbol of nonconformity, free-thinking, and rebelliousness. - For cute appeal and High fashion. - As pure decoration. There is also further meaning in the color turquoise. Several are...refreshing, feminine, calming, sophisticated, energy, wisdom, serenity, wholeness, creativity, and emotion.These little earrings are one-of-a-kind works of art and created entirely by hand with the finest materials. Aquamarine total carat weight is 1.10 carats. They are 1 and 3/8ths inches long.
