Rising up Roses
Day of the Dead is about revisiting those who have passed the veil before us. The visiting spirits are greeted with orange and yellow flowers framing the altars of the deceased. The families of the spirits leave out gifts like their favorite food, drink, and photos. The bright candy skulls that we all associate with this holiday? People mold them and decorate them to represent the moment of death and it's continuous presence in our lives. These altars are a beautiful way to remember and greet the people who have passed on. And what about all the gorgeous Day of the Dead costumes? People head into the streets with candles, puppets, and of course, the show-stopping Catrina ensembles.
These rose earrings are the perfect way to accessorize a number of Day of the Dead looks. The black and red rose posts simply slide through pierced lobes, giving you a lovely look to top off your costume as well as a dark everyday touch.
