Oysters are layered upon oysters on this multi-tiered throne. It has two different "seats" so it can accommodate two mermaids together, or one mermaid and octopus. The back of the throne is a colorful Mexican flat half-scallop decorated with three small auger shells in front and some coquina/butterfly clam shells in back. It has several pearly umboniums throughout and a chunk of coral on one side. This throne sits flat and does not rock or have any loose parts; every shell is attached permanently.

Dimensions: approx 6" wide X 5" tall x 5" deep. Weighs 14 ounces

Mermaid furniture is made with a variety of different shells permanently mortared together. Each piece is scaled to the size of the mermaid dolls in my shop which are about 7" long and posable. By themselves these shell creations can also be used as small planters and beach centerpieces. They are designed to be viewed from any direction and sometimes they are reversible.

THE MAKING: I mix craft shells with hand-picked in order to achieve a natural arrangement as it might be found on a coral reef. Most of my shells have been collected from the Texas Gulf Coast by me personally or my friends and family. Some come from more distant and exotic beach vacations. Prior to mounting, each shell goes through a vigorous scrubbing and three-step process to deep clean, buff and polish. I coat them with a thin layer of sealer which brings out the natural color and lustre, but without excess gloss.
