- These earrings are handcrafted from:
Peacock blue hand-mounted, vintage-style seahorse cameos,
Antique bronze settings,
Antique bronze French hook ear-wires
- Approx. 1 1/2 inch/3.81 cm drop.
Cameos have always fascinated me, and the idea that they were carved from a shell by hand. Genuine hand-carved abalone cameos are not easy to come by these days and are usually expensive. So when I stumbled across these sweet seahorses, although they aren’t abalone, I thought they were a stunning faux. They are a matte resin of peacock blue and milky white and are surprisingly lightweight.
“Hear my soul speak:
The very instant that I saw you, did
My heart fly to your service.”
-William Shakespeare, The Tempest
