A Mermaid with silvery hair swims through a moonlit ocean, surrounded by magical seaweed and sea anemones.
Created from 100% cotton fabric from UK fabric design company Lewis and Irene, this fabric collection is called Moontide!
I’ve selected this lovely mermaid, with teal coloured tail and silver metallic accents to her white hair. She is surrounded by purple, teal, green and lilac seaweed, silver metallic bubbles and sea anemones on a deep blue background.
I have sewn two semi-circular shapes together with special foam fabric stabiliser with silver metallic thread on the top and navy cotton thread on the bottom. I’ve used a zig zag or pinking cut around the edge for a textured look and sealed the edges to ensure they don't fray.
For the front, I have added by hand. silver metallic high quality Japanese glass Delica seed beads to some of the circular bubbles and accent bubbles, as well as beading the lilac sea anemones with white AB (aurora borealis rainbow effect) and magenta bead centres.
There is a special ‘paper clip’ style stainless steel fine chain that measures approximately 46cm, with a 2 inch extension clasp, to give an adjustable section.
This amazing and unique necklace measures 14cm wide by 8.5cm deep.
It will come to you safely packaged in tissue paper within a natural cotton drawstring bag, ready to gift to a seahorse or mermaid fan, someone who loves wild swimming or nature (or to keep for yourself!).
