The seahorse has many different meanings - depending on who you ask!

 

Some cultures believe them to be magical beings representing good luck. Others, patience, persistence or generosity. 

 

Greek mythology portrays them as symbols of strength and power, whilst ancient Europeans believed they protected the souls of departed sailors as they travelled to the underworld.

 

This particular beautiful seahorse is made with perfect green seaberries from Seaham* UK, and finished with a handpainted touch.

 

Captured perfectly in a charming rustic wooden box frame measuring 18x18cm (aperture 15.2cm), this unique piece of artwork will make a perfect gift or treat - an eyecatching addition to any home. 

 

* World renowned amongst sea glass lovers, Seaham beach yields some of the most sought after sea glass pieces. 

 

The Londonderry Bottleworks, which operated from the 1850s to 1921, was the largest in Britain. Producing up to 20,000 hand-blown bottles every day, they distributed their glassworks world wide. At the end of each day, waste glass was dumped into the North Sea which obviously would be frowned upon in this day and age.

 

However, over 100 years later, the colourful glass that can be found - beautifully smoothed and shaped by the rough North Sea - truly are gems to be treasured.
