”International mermaid” This “Mermaid Necklace” is lighter than the other multi strand woven mermaids. A single strand with charms dangling from it gives this more delicate piece a distinct playfulness and movement. It is made entirely from shells and pearls, many of which hold my own travel memories from foreign places. There are shells from Jamaica, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and my own home on Martha’s Vineyard. The main charm is a piece of coral that is wrapped in sterling silver. Many people have commented on what they believe it resembles. What do you see? It can be worn by a bride, but is whimsical enough for the county fair, or try it at the beach! Length 18 & 3/4 inches, light weight, hook clasp. (See also my other “mermaid” necklaces)

The mermaid has been present in folklore through out the world. According to Finnish mythology Mermaids are immortal, beautiful and innocent, and are able to grant wishes, heal sickness, lift curses, and brew magic potions. The mermaid embodies the concept of a strong woman who is more secure in her nudity than the confines of man made traditions or simple logic. As Humans we often attempt to understand ourselves as we relate to animals, while remaining separate from them. Having grown up on a small island I have become interested in the idea of silki’s (seal people), shape shifters, and the spirit of the sea; all have influenced this work. Visitors that travel to coastal regions are always curious about the shells that appear on the beaches. We tend to collect them with out intentions to use them. This line of mermaid necklaces utilize these treasures in a way that will make you feel beautiful and powerful. Each mermaid necklace has its own personality and will suite the wearer in different ways. The four mermaid necklaces here have their own themes. Some are made of mostly shells while others focus on a concept represented by the color scheme. These necklaces are more than just jewelry, they are unique one of a kind works of art created by collage. They are asymmetrical while being balanced.
