When I was a young boy, my uncles who were crayfishermen would always come back to the island wearing seahorse pendants around their neck.

When I became a young man, I'd always try to catch one for myself to make my own seahorse pendant.

Even when I was diving for crayfish, I'd never come across any seahorse so this piece is my "one that got away"!
