Mermaid

About this design:

I got this mermaid pendant half price at Hobby Lobby last summer. She matched these two strands of pretty blue czech glass. Plus some piggy beads that Asia sent me. I miss her and all her gorgeous jewelry. And I just randomly knotted this with no pattern.

Components:

Brass mermaid and starfish. Czech glass. Some clear greenish/blue beads. Piggy beads. Seed beads. I dont know what the little pale beads are in the piggy section. Waxed linen.

    Another beautiful beach necklace. Would be great for a pool party also!

    Nice work! The Czech beads with the white within them look like ocean wave caps–I think they were a most excellent choice. Love the cording & knots with the starfish beads tucked in. I think we all miss Asia, her kind presence, and wonderful work. Since I live no where around an ocean, I will have to enjoy a ‘vacation’ by looking at all these lovely beach inspired pieces.

    Deb, what an awesome necklace. Your pendant or I guess the proper term is “focal” is so unique and beautiful. Your colors are favorites. I’m so in awe of these shades of blue.

    Thank you Pam, Crystal and Granny Nancy.
    Granny Nancy the mermaid is actually a pendant. She is supposed to hang from the ring in her hand. I just tied the cord to her tail.

    Great necklace…love your use of the piggies! What’s happened to Asia? I knew she wasn’t posting on LB anymore…but that’s all.

    Beautiful design. I love the way your mermaid “swims” through the waves. And the starfish are perfect. Some of my most fun pieces are done randomly. I love yours.

    Asia moved back to Poland I believe. Out of the blue, over a year ago maybe two, I got a package from her full of piggies, czech glass, some other beads, bunches of art beads. No explanation. Her shop has said “taking a break” for ever since. I know she had wanted to go home for awhile.
    Thank you Jane and Beady.

    This is another awesome design. I really like the way you made the mermaid the focal. Very inventive. Fun mix of textures and components. Thanks for the update on Asia. I’ve wondered what she was up to.

    This is such a pretty beach necklace! You can almost hear the waves coming in. The way you attached the mermaid is so unique, one of those aha moments!

    Thank you for posting your lovely mermaid necklace, which gives me some ideas as to how to deal with that pendant, which is in my stash, but not with the blue patina. I like the way you tied the tail. I got mine online, I forget the source. And thank you for mentioning Asia, who was active on the Lima Beads Design Gallery before I discovered it. I was able to look at her designs and that was really interesting!
