The overarching theme of the 2019 Halloween Collection is 'Alchemy & Divination'
This piece is part of the Skeleton Mermaid Mini Collection
Skeleton Feejee Mermaid earrings, accented with pear-shaped labradorite drops. These mermaids have great movement, their tails and arms are jointed. There are 5 pairs available, the labradorite drops will vary slightly from the pair pictured.
So exquisite are their visage and sometimes also their song, that mermaids could inspire sailors into such yearning distraction that their ships could often be caused to disastrously run aground on rocks; indeed, some seafarers considered that the merest sighting of a mermaid was a grim portent of doom. Other mermaids would take a much deeper interest in human males and would lure beguiled men beneath the waves, to drown and sometimes, to eat them.
