The Mermaid's Heart Necklace

£55.00 GBP

Who can win the heart of a mermaid? A glittering lampwork heart glass bead armoured in brass anchors this necklace of rosary-links. A moss agate orb crowns the "sacred heart" which hangs from a chain of more glimmering abalone shells, Picasso glass nautilus and rosette beads in seaweed colourways making up the hand wrapped rosary style links.  Matching earrings can be made on request. 

Necklace measures 20" including hand forged copper hook clasp. This necklace can be made up to 2" longer or shorter (up to 16") by request.  Contact me if you would like advice regarding necklace length. 

This necklace would be perfect for the bride or bridesmaid at a seaside wedding, or for a pagan handfasting-- it is regal, dressy but can also be dressed down and worn again and again after the special day.

The Little Mermaid was my favourite story as a child, though the heartbreak of the story haunted and terrified me-- the bargain gone wrong! I made this necklace thinking of the new stories we can tell our daughters, where enchanted creatures get to live, where we do get second chances, and no one must trade their voice. I think secretly what I really loved about the story were the illustrations of the mermaid's fantastic undersea world. Those images definitely informed the colours and textures of this piece!
