La Calavera Catrina
The La Calvera Catrina black 8mm onyx bracelet strung together by a high quality chord consists of a gold elegant skull that is central to the two gold beads with immense flower detailing surrounding it. This piece was inspired by the famous Mexican illustrator, Jose Guadalupe Posada who etched the elegant skull in the early 18th C, which came to represent the day of the dead.
The image has bled into Nicaragua’s day of the dead. Instead of mourning the loss of their loved ones, Nicaraguans’ embrace and celebrate those who have passed away and therefore this symbol represents happiness and life rather than sadness and loss.
Dirt Alert: Black Onyx promotes emotional well being and has a reputation for helping individuals with closure of past relationships and optimism with present relationships.
