Miranda: Petite Seahorse Necklace

$140.00

Inspired by my love of the magic of the sea where I was born, Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid', Sylvia Plath, and Shakespeare's 'The Tempest,' 'Sea Witch' is a series composed of natural elements forged into new objects. 

This necklace is the sister to the Ariel necklace sans spyglass and is inspired by the character Miranda 
from 'The Tempest'. In the play, Miranda is exiled on an island with her father, the magician Prospero, who cares for her deeply. 

Shortly after my father passed away I had a dream of standing on the shoreline and watching him wade into the water. It was a night sea so the water appeared black and inky, an abyss. I wanted to follow him desperately and he motioned for me to stay behind. In many ways the Sea Witch series reflects this dream; this vision I had of my father returning to the sea near where I was born. Most of the ocean is a mystery to us still, a kind of underwater outer space, an underworld.

The petite seahorse is 22mm tall and 16mm at its widest. There is a hidden bail on the back to give the seahorse the illusion of floating on your skin. It is set with a faux black diamond in its eye. Cast immortal in sterling silver and hand finished in my Philadelphia studio with a gloomy gray oxidization.
