Details

The coquettish image of the Catrina inspires Roy Nilson's Day of the Dead jewelry collection. Nilson portrays Catrina wearing a wide-brimmed hat and a skin-tight black dress with a thigh-high split that allows her to show one leg. The sterling silver brooch doubles as a pendant.

Catrina is the original creation of José Guadalupe Posadas, renowned author, journalist and political cartoonist (1852-1913). He is credited for popularizing the Day of the Dead celebrations, especially through the creation of skeletal cartoons that capture the Mexican attitude towards death. The most renowned of these is the Catrina (meaning "dapper"), and she is always elegantly dressed, featuring a wide-brimmed hat with colorful flowers.
