This pair of seahorses are cut from smooth white leather, embossed by hand with shiny metallic gold foil, and hung from shiny gold-plated leverback hooks. These are statement earrings designed to turn heads, but they are really lightweight and wearable too.


In these original Rosita Bonita illustrations the seahorses have horse-like heads, representing the hippocampi, the trusty leaders of Poseidon's chariot in tales from ancient Greece. Made by Ro in her Margate studio.


Fom the Siren collection; inspired by ancient obsessions with mythological fish-tailed beasts, and celebrating girlhood fairytale fantasies and 20th-century mermaid carnival exhibits and aqua shows. 


Overall earring drop length is 10cm. Seahorse measures 8cm high by 3cm across.

  • Rosita Bonita is the glamorous alter ego of (equally glamorous!) designer Rowenna Harrison. Ro began experimenting with screen-printing her designs onto leather back in 2010, marrying her life-long love of drawing with an experimental approach to materials.

    Each piece of Rosita Bonita printed leather jewellery is lovingly handcrafted in Ro’s Margate studio, a stone’s throw from the Grotto. Original illustrations are screen-printed or foil-embossed onto fine leathers and carefully assembled into unique and collectable treasures. With these influences, and a pervading sense of dreamy fun, Rosita Bonita creates tactile printed leather statement jewellery, which is at once nostalgic and novel.
