Inspired by the limited edition print titled Mandarin Fish taken by my husband underwater photographer Glen Cowans
Mandarin fish spend their days hiding within the corals but at night it is a different story altogether. After the sun sets they gradually rise through the coral branches to the outer edges. They move in small “skips” along the coral almost as if they are walking. When a large male happens upon a smaller female he will chase her for awhile and then, with some unseen signal, they move free of the coral and swim cheek to cheek, almost as if they are doing a tango. Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, they mate and then dart back to the safety of the coral.
Every earring is hand-created at our gallery and so some slight variations in composition may occur.
Earrings are water resistant but not completely waterproof, we recommend to remove before showing or bathing.
