You know what I like about October? Halloween. And you know what I like about Halloween? It gives me an excuse to repost this gif starring my hockey mask and chainsaw earrings. (The gif was created by the fine folks at Spring, the Instagram-like shopping app.)
The combination of a hockey mask and a chainsaw has come to be a recognizable reference to movie serial killers, even though it muddles together two different horror flicks. As I wrote in 2014 when I introduced the earrings, the character of Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th movies wore a hockey mask but wielded a machete. The chainsaw belongs to Leatherface of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. Leatherface does wear masks, but his are made of human skin. But the Jason/Leatherface blend of killer accessories dates back at least to 1993, when The Simpsons used it in its “Cape Feare” episode.
You can see how the earrings look on here.
If you’re not into slasher movies, I’ve got skull jewelry (for every budget) that’s appropriate for Halloween and the rest of the year too. I certainly wear it all year round! I’m putting a few pieces on sale for the holiday. Check them out now, because these prices will be available for a limited time.
My 18K gold Juana skull pieces were inspired by Juana la Loca, a princess of Spain born in the 15th century. Read all about her here. This 18K yellow gold “peekaboo” Juana skull locket is accented with black diamonds.
I’ve got an 18K gold Juana skull necklace with white-sapphire eyes.
There’s an earring version too!
You can see other styles of skull jewelry on my website. And here’s one that’s not on my website because it is inventory from waaaaaayy back in the day that’s been languishing in the safe. This pirate-skull pendant is 14K white gold with little diamonds, including (treated) dark-blue ones. (UPDATED TO ADD: SOLD!)
This is a real bargain: only $150! Email me at info at wendybrandes dot com to purchase.
