a mermaid, made out of clay without patterns and molds.

About this design:

I don't really no how to describe of all of the jewelry that I made. I used beads that people didn't want, off my dress shoes, rummage sales of broken necklaces, earrings and bracelets. I made the mermaid out of hand, and first i made the big mermaid, then later on added the two kid mermaids with the mom mermaid. I am still painting the mermaid that I made. The mermaid that I painted, I bought on E bay. I used fingernail polish for the hot pink color and the rest I used Anabel paint. the angel I bought in a rummage for 75 cents. Painted the hole thing in different colors, and used the beads off of my t-shirts that had holes and glued the fancy beads onto the angel with hot glue. Of witch I do most of my work with.


Different categories of different beads in many styles and also clay working as decorations for the house the stand out.

    I love your necklaces! Such interesting and eccentric designs. Isn’t it fun to mix, match, and reuse beads from all different resources? Great work!
