PATRICK MAVROS – SEAHORSE EARRINGS
On a dive in Mauritius, Forbes Mavros was extremely lucky to observe the remarkable creature, the Common seahorse, or Hippocampus kuda, a Greek word meaning ‘horse monster’.
The seahorse is an amusing amalgam of incongruous parts—a horse’s head, a dragon’s scales, a chameleon’s free-roving eyes and changeable colors, a monkey’s tail, a kangaroo’s pouch, an insect’s armor, and a hummingbird’s wings—yet the fact remains that it is simply a fish. A rare and beautiful fish inspired Forbes Mavros to create this design of a seahorse ascending from a cluster of pearls. These beautiful sterling silver handcrafted earrings are 2.0in length.
