Inspired by the limited edition print titled Mandarin taken by my husband underwater photographer Glen Cowans
Mandarin fish spend their days hiding within the reef but at night it is a different story altogether. After the sun sets they gradually rise through to the outer edges. They move in small “skips” along the reef 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 reef 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 safety.
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.
