I have a BIG Sea Horse Pendant that this would look great with. Here's a link: https://patricia-healey-copper.myshopify.com/collections/sea-life/products/big-sea-horse-pendant
Check out the "Little Sea Horse Facing Right", which mirrors this facing left sea horse. Paired together the two make wonderful earring components. Here's a link: https://patricia-healey-copper.myshopify.com/collections/sea-life/products/little-sea-horse-facing-right
When mating, the female seahorse deposits up to 1,500 eggs in the male's front facing pouch. The male carries the eggs fro 9-45 days until the seahorses emerge fully developed, but very small. I like that!
My process for making the copper components. We’ve manipulated the color of the copper using genuine top shelf copper and changing the colors using both heat and chemistry. Read on!:
Original Artwork by Patricia Healey ~ Each gorgeous genuine copper bead and pendant is handmade from sheet metal. First we cut the shapes out, then put form to metal using the technique of “Repousse”, (beating the crap out of the metal from the reverse side giving it form). We use a bronze solder which you can sometimes see as bits of gold peeking through the solder seams. To get the rich colors we use our top secret patination formula and then fire it up with a torch. Finally, the color is sealed in with a metal lacquer.
