A mermaid for my friend

About this design:

This is a birthday gift for one of my friends. She's also an October Child, and I think a mermaid is perfect for her! I hope she likes the blue color.


Larimar Blue Crazy Lace, Stormyblue Freshwater pearls, TierraCast beads, Antique Silver chain, a GGP Mermaid pendant and a Starfish charm.

    What a beautiful design! I love this one, Wenche! I have trouble with double strand necklaces and hardly every make them. They never drape right for me no matter what I do. :)

    Thanks to all of you! I fact I had to change the necklace a bit, because the pendant wouldn’t hang properly. I have now replaced the chain at the bottom with some freshwater pearls.

    This is stunning, Wenche! Would love to see how it looks with the new FWP substituted for the chain – I’ll bet it is just as gorgeous!

  25. Wemai Coffee Chick
    Wemai Coffee Chick says:

    Thanks! I’m sorry I can’t show you how it looks with the FWP, because I didn’t make a photo before I gave it away. But it’s the same FWP as between the Crazy Lace, small stormy blue keishis. The problem was that the chain wanted to turn the pendant half way around, if you see what I mean.

    I’m sure the pearls look beautiful in place of the chain! So, did your friend love it? :D
