Mermaid Necklace - Seashell Bib statement assemblage Ppece - InVintageHeaven

Wow.....I really had an interesting time thinking this creation up! As many of you may know, mermaids are one of my favorite inspirations. I have a large collection of sea shells collected from Florida beaches and wanted to come up with a way to use them in a assemblage necklace and here is the result!

This is a unique contrast of vintage gold tone jewelry chains and natural, organic shells and pearls! I can imagine a mermaid collecting her treasures and weaving this.....The shells are wirewrapped onto the multiple vintage chains. I then did some detail wirewrapping with dyed freshwater pearls and little glass beads in soft natural shades of brown, taupes and grays

This is truly a piece of jewelry-as-art! I made sure that the back is comfortable to wear an is a weaving of the chains. Of course since these are real shells, you have to be a bit more careful with them.

The bib centerpiece measures 6" across. The center of the piece measures 6" down to the bottom of the chain dangle. The neck chain is adjustable from 17 - 14" long.

Thank you for looking at my altered art, assemblage, vintage, new, used, estate relics made into jewelry! I enjoy collecting, searching and finding the perfect unique pieces to create into handcrafted, artisan, one of a kind items for you! Each one is truly a piece of art and I am unable to create another one, so if this beauty speaks to you, please do not let it go :) !

Please note since many of these items are vintage, they have that wonderful aged and worn patina and are not meant to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
