Description

Sterling Silver Seahorse, Large
Beachcomber Collection

Some of the oldest seahorse stories tell of the Greek sea god Poseidon galloping through the oceans on a golden chariot pulled by Hippocampus, a beast that was half horse and half fish. Today, the seahorses’ scientific name also happens to be Hippocampus. It’s thought ancient Greek fishermen believed the real seahorses they sometimes found tangled in their nets were the offspring of Poseidon’s mighty seeds.

Our beachcomber jewellery collection is made up of sea offerings found along the shore line. Sea shells, dried starfish, sea urchins and of course the most magical of them all – seahorses; all tossed ashore; perhaps even, by Poseidon himself.

This seahorse is my favourite from our Beachcomber collection. Paying homage to this beautiful magical creature, it has been forever immortalised in silver. Cast from a real dried Seahorse and using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The casting has picked up all the detail of the original and very unusual fish.

This seahorse has been oxidised with a dark patina which highlights the depth and markings of the seahorse. Plain silver and gold plated also available in my shop.

Your choice of either a sterling silver ball chain, or a belcher chain. Please let me know upon purchase.

Each Seahorse bears my makers mark and a .925 London Assay hallmark.

Your pendant will arrive gift boxed.

Dimensions:
Height 5.5cm - excluding bail
Depth 2.

Inspiration

I have always loved and been fascinated by the sea and its creatures, both real and mythical. Fairy tale stories with mermaids; Sea creatures (Yes, I've even hunted for Nessie!) and Greek and Roman myths with Gods like Poseidon/Neptune.
As a child, I lived right on the beach front in South Africa. I then worked on cruise ships as a bass player in a band for over 20 years. During this period, I travelled to many exotic islands, such as Mauritius, Seychelles, Fiji, Caribbean Islands, etc. All these wonderful travels and beach combing days, provided me with some lovely finds, shells, dried corals, sea glass and driftwood. I am also a certified diver, so have experienced some incredible under water sights.
Oh, and did I mention I am a Pisces...... Seems only natural I'd be drawn to water.
Some of my special treasures have been forever immortalised in precious metal in my Beachcomber Collection.
