A deep aqua green sea holds this snazzy, red-tressed mermaid. Hair like crimson seaweed billows all around her. I use teeny brushes (no magnifying glass, really!) to put highlights on her tail and hair, shadows on her skin, and even the smallest mark of an eye and eyebrow. The background is painted in a glossy oil enamel that darkens as the water deepens with tiny white bubbles around.

Because who doesn't secretly wish for a chance to be a mermaid?

I paint and complete each piece before photographing, so the one depicted in the pictures is precisely what this listing is for. The painting is built up over many days, allowing first the background and then the layers to dry as details and colors are added. It's durable and water-resistant.

MATERIAL:
The locket is two-tone brass and comes from vintage stock, so each piece has its own bit of natural tarnish. The diameter of the sphere is 18 mm - same as a dime.
Looks swell worn open or closed. The chain is raw brass which will oxidize to a deep vintage gold over time (don't worry, it doesn't mark skin or clothes). It measures 20" (50.8 centimeters), and is closed with a lobster clasp.

SHIPPING:
Each locket comes in its very own decorative tin (surprise!). Padded kraft envelopes will keep it snug and safe. Shipping is first class with delivery confirmation (tracking) for domestic packages, and first class with a customs form for international. I ship 2-3 days a week, to get orders out promptly.

Thanks for browsing! If you're curious about a custom order please feel free to send a convo - especially to have a mermaid painted with a particular color scheme or hair style.
