These earrings are perfect for showing the world your alternative side while also being delicate. They are made with gorgeous mookaite beads (6mm) and smaller amber coloured agate beads (4mm) with a bold copper skull bead (10mm) strung on copper/bronze wire. I have used copper to capture the Victorian spirit of this piece. The skull represents the memento mori ethos.
Mookaite, also known as Mookaite Jasper, is found in Western Australia in the Kennedy Ranges near Mooka Creek for which the stone is named after. The word mooka means ‘running waters’ in traditional aboriginal language. The vibrant red, pink, mustard, purple and cream tones reflect some of Australia’s unique landscapes and earthy tones. A nurturing stone that supports and sustains during times of stress, mookaite brings peace and a feeling of wholeness. It also helps us with decision making, especially when we are having a difficult time. It encourages versatility and helps us to accept change. It’s one of my favourite crystals!
My jewellery is inspired by Mexican sugar/candy skulls and Victorian memento mori (more info can be found here). I wear skulls to remember my loved ones.
