100% 925 Sterling Silver
— ”the seahorse” is an ongoing project about gender and how to transform a statement into a physical object that can be worn by people. A seahorse is a unique animal as their reproduction process is followed by the male getting pregnant and give birth.
This perspective can challenge how we react to gender and how we may consider our
identity in terms of what gender we represent. After living in Berlin, Madelen Isa experienced the wide specter of cultural differences regarding gender and decided to create a piece that could open up the dialog around the subject.

How to Clean
Clean your jewelry carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth or chamois; this helps maintain or bring back its shine. If necessary, you can use a mild washing up liquid with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewellery cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewellery over time. We do not recommend the use of any jewellery polishing cloths which have been treated with cleaners or polishing agents.
Keep Away from
Always remember that your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off when dressing.
Your jewelry is particularly susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant.
Do not keep jewelry in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause many gemstones to fade and lose their colour. Amethyst, rose quartz, chalcedony and smokey quartz are just some of the gemstones that can become paler from exposure to sunlight.
