Just showing off today my new sea horse earrings that I found recently in a local boutique. Nothing that much special about them, bijouterie, and yet I couldn't resist them, so cute and pretty they seemed to me. I believe it is the sea horse design that attracted me in the first place. That's how the earrings look on me. Obviously, any sea theme jewelry would look great accessorizing a nautical outfit and so I am wearing one here.
This mystical little being in spite of odd appearance doesn't fail to charm with its beauty and delicate nature. No wonder this creature inspires so many jewelry designers. I found just a few examples and what stunning pieces they are!
