“what I found on the beach!”

  

Description from Kitty Chicky Cat: I was thinking this could be a multi strand, maybe braided, charm bracelet type thing where all the beads are wired onto the chains (like charms) and the button is used as the clasp.
This made me think of a young man who went walking on the beach and found a pile of beautiful, glittering mermaid scales. He realized that she took off her tail to go walking on the beach and set off to find her. She was crafty and eluded him and he finally returned to the cast off scales, which he foolishly left behind, to hide them so she would have to stay with him. But she had already donned her tail once more. The young man caught one glimpse of the beautiful mermaid before she dove into the waves and disappeared and that was enough, it was love at first sight. He spent the rest of his days and years wandering up and down the beach in hopes of finding her again. He wanted to walk with her along the sand and help her learn to love him too, for his love was true and he would never steal her scales and chain her to himself as that fish’s tail chained her to the sea. Yet he would have been satisfied with one more glimpse of the mermaid, to look just once more upon the sweet face of his heart’s love. And so he wandered along the shore, evermore caught in the siren’s net, that ancient spell called love.

    It would make a beautiful bracelet, or a necklace. It might look really cool as a crocheted piece too except you couldn’t use the larger beads. Whatever you decide to do with it I would love to see a picture of it finished. Loved the story too, in my favs!

These beads are too beautiful for my own good! ;) lol They sing to me with sweet little siren’s voices “Buy me…..You know you want to! … Buyyyy meeeeee!” I’d love to make something with this but unfortunately I’ve had to put myself into beading prison! :(
