Halloween Inspired Jewellery

Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic Samhain festival that marks the end of the summer and celebrates the final harvest and the onset of winter during October 31st and 2nd November. The eve of November is regarded as the most magical time during this period, known today as Halloween. The Celts believed that during this magical time, the divide between the living and the dead lifted during Samhain leaving ghosts and evil spirits to roam the earth. From this has come today’s iconic Halloween symbol’s of ghosts and ghouls, skulls, bats, pumpkins, witches and black cats!

This year the dark arts and rebellious jewellery is a big fashion story, so a Halloween treat will turn into a season long investment piece.

Happy Halloween!

The spookiest time of the year is upon us as the days get shorter, darker and colder! Ghosts and ghouls and things that go bump in the night, witches, black cats, pumpkins, and of course scary movies (Paranormal Activity 4 anyone!?) can mean only one thing, Halloween

Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic Samhain festival that marks the end of the summer and celebrates the final harvest and the onset of winter during October 31st and 2nd November. The eve of November is regarded as the most magical time during this period, known today as Halloween. The Celts believed that during this magical time, the divide between the living and the dead lifted during Samhain leaving ghosts and evil spirits to roam the earth. From this has come today’s iconic Halloween symbol’s of ghosts and ghouls, witches and black cats! It was a common Celtic belief that black cats were humans who had been changed as punishment for their evil deeds. As protection from these evil spirits, large bonfires were built for protection to ward off the dead.

The tradition of trick-or-treating also originates from the Samhain festival where on 2nd November, All Souls Day, the poor would walk from village to village begging for square pieces of bread known as ‘soul cakes’ in exchange for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives. This practice was later taken up by children who would visit the houses nearby and be given food and money, which in modern day means lot and lots of sweets!

Have fun with Nomination charms with scary faces and black stones; create a gothic edge with Pandora’s Rhodolite pieces; keep it edgy with skulls and crosses from ChloBo’s After Dark collection, or choose a Halloween favourite from Pumpkins to Spiders! Our favourite at the moment is Trollbeads Inner Glow charm bead that glows bright green in the dark!
