Description

This mermaid jewelry features an image of Suvannamaccha, a Thai mermaid princess with a fascinating legend. It is a bohemian bracelet of leather and silver.

The beautiful image comes from a vintage belt buckle. I made a mold from it, and then using fine silver precious metal clay to make a casting. I then fire the precious metal clay in my kiln, and the extreme heat burns off the impurities in the turning it to pure .999 silver.

This piece is marked on the back with my makers mark and .999 FS. It is finished with a leather cord, bronze beads and faceted brass beads, and a sliding knot closure. The "eyes" that the leather slides through are sterling silver wire pieces that I have soldered closed. The one in the photo is my own personal piece. Please allow 2 weeks. I will send photos before shipping so you can see your piece is as enchanting as the one in the photo.

Please choose the approximate size. It will slip over wrist, and the sliding knots will adjust down to fit the wrist once it is on.

When I first received the belt buckle as a gift from a friend, I didn't know anything about the image, but in doing some research I found the legend, and I have put the story below, if you are interested.

Suvannamaccha is a daughter of Tosakanth appearing in the Thai and other Southeast Asian versions of Ramayana. She is a mermaid princess who tries to spoil Hanuman's plans to build a bridge to Lanka but falls in love with him instead.

The figure of Suvannamaccha is popular in Thai folklore and is represented on small cloth streamers or framed pictures that are hung as luck-bringing charms in shops and houses throughout Thailand.

Hanuman, building a causeway, discovered that he was hampered by mermaids underwater. When Sita is kidnapped, her husband Rama enlists Hanuman's aid in rescuing her.

Hanuman learns that Sita is being held captive on the island of Lanka. He informs Rama, her husband, who orders him to build a causeway to Sri Lanka from India so Rama's army can attack. Hanuman collects his band of Vanaras and they begin throwing huge boulders into the sea to make a foundation for the causeway.

After a few days they notice something is wrong and call Hanuman to report. They tell him that each day they throw rocks into the sea and the next day they are gone.

Hanuman asks for volunteers to join him while he instructs the others to continue throwing rocks into the sea. When several volunteers have stepped forward Hanuman leads them into the waves. They find a large number of mermaids underwater. As they watch, a new rock is tossed in. The mermaids living underwater take the rocks and carry them away. Hanuman looks for their leader. He spots lovely mermaid supervising the others. He swims towards her but she skillfully evades him. Time and again he begins an attack but it comes to nothing.

Hanuman finds he is falling in love with the creature. He changes his tactics and begins to silently woo her. She responds to him and soon they are together at the bottom of the sea.

Later, Hanuman asks the mermaid why she is stealing the rocks. She tells him that she is Suvannamaccha, a daughter of Ravana (the demon who had abducted Sita). When Ravana saw Hanuman's Vanaras building a causeway he instructed Suvannamaccha to stop it.

Hanuman tells the mermaid why he is building the causeway. He tells her of the abduction of Sita, the battle between Rama and her father Ravana, how they started to build a bridge, and in consequence was ordered to finish the causeway within seven days or pay with his life.

Suvannamaccha turned to Hanuman and her eyes were filled with love. No more, she said, would she prevent Hanuman from completing his mission. Her mermaids underwater would, in fact, return all the stolen rocks to the causeway.

They parted as lovers part but it was not to be the end for them. Hanuman had left a seed with Suvannamaccha and soon she would give birth to their son, Macchanu.
