Part of my P L A N T - B A S E D range, this piece is made using materials specially chosen to feel just as luxuriously tactile, lightweight & easy to wear as my Leather Jewels.
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 embossed by hand with shiny metallic gold foil, & hung from shiny gold-plated shell adorned leverback hooks.
Lightweight statement earrings to turn heads.
The beautifully soft but durable surface is made from natural wood fibres, sourced from responsibly managed forests. This is mounted to a strong but lightweight base of eco-friendly bamboo. All products I use to colour, construct & finish these pieces are free of any animal derivatives and, to the best of my knowledge & research, have never been tested on animals.
Wood pulp textile, bamboo, gold plated brass.
