Kate picked up the Día de los Muertos theme for her current collection, along with an articulated wooden skeleton, whilst sailing in central American recently. From hence, Philippe the wee golden earrings came to be. Yes, she realizes that Philippe’s name is French not Spanish, but a highly regarded French woman named these wee skeletons thus and she couldn’t turn her down.
Philippe’s 18k gold vermeil little skull features red enamel eyes a white enamel grill. He walks that life, death, robot line just right. All the details are exquisite. Note, in particular, the faceted edges of the his head and the pointy spike attaching him to the ear wire. Lightweight and as subtle as dangly life, death, robot skulls come.
