A favourite from the Siren collection; inspired by ancient obsessions with mythological fish-tailed beasts, and celebrating girlhood fairytale fantasies & 20th century Mermaid carnival exhibits & aqua shows.
Seahorses were traditionally a common good luck charm amongst Italian sailors, & have fascinated divers & aquarium-goers for centuries. In these original Rosita Bonita illustrations they have horse-like heads, representing the hippocampi - trusty leaders of Poseidon's chariot in tales from ancient Greece.
A pair of seahorses are cut from smooth coloured leather, embossed by hand with shiny metallic gold foil, & hung from shiny gold-plated shell adorned leverback hooks.
Lightweight statement earrings to turn heads.
