Inspired by the iconic earrings Enya wears in her Caribbean Blue music video from the 90's - These winged seahorse earrings are an absolute urban mermaid's dream.
Each winged seahorse is cast from my own sculpture to silver, in a sweet pair that face each other to flank each side of your face. From their curling tails dangle handmade silver bezels that enclose pretty drops of flashing kyanite gemstones, an echo of the sea under the moonlight. These kyanites - gemstones prized in crystal-magic circules for their ability to dispel negativity - have chatoyance, and catch and flash in the light in a way that was hard to capture in still photos.
These earrings are casually flamboyant, singing of mysterious waves, cove-dwelling sea-goddesses and mysterious beachside trysts. They are available in a very limited quantity till my kyanite treasure-stocks last.

While I take great care to make my work as sturdy as possible, all handmade jewelry is prone to breakage if snagged onto things or dropped.
By nature sterling silver is 'soft', and fabricated items with corners and details that protrude must be worn carefully lest they catch on something and break or worse, yank your finger (or ear or arm or neck).
Additional consideration must be taken with gemstone-set items. Gemstones are sensitive to water and chemicals (like skin care products) Please wear these Battleaxes with queenly consideration to avoid damage.
All sterling silver tarnishes! How and when it happens depends on a variety of factors and you can't really stop it. Some people like aged patina, some do not. The good news is you may easily remove unwanted tarnish with a polishing cloth (like sunshine polishing brand) - just be careful round gemstones.
