Lately I've been seeing hoops with script across the center all over the place. I've seen the "Baby Phat" version quite a bit, the Sweethearts, a couple of extra large hoops with the word "Love" scrawled through them. I think hoop earrings are fantastic and I liked these ideas, but I wanted something a little different. One day I was in a mood and decided I needed a pair that weren't so sugary sweet. These might be overkill, but that's precisely why I adore them! Memento Mori is Latin for "remember your mortality" or "remember you will die". They are both made from 1/8" acrylic and gunmetal findings.

Wow, these are really neatly done. I like the words and that not many people would know that it's a bit morbid.
