The Victorian Sea Gem

Another design I’ve finished called “The Victorian Sea Gem.” Victorian Style is making a comeback everyone, and I must say I have always been partial to that era myself 😉
This piece is done in the tradition Victorian draped chain style, with the chain in a matalic coal color to accentuate the vivid color of the authentic seashell found by myself while beach combing.The shell is accompanied by two pearlized chandelier teardrops, and two authentic pieces of rounded green malachite. To enhance the wild sea-life feeling, the seashell has been connected to the chain by two authentic matalic coal colored barrel swivels and safety clamps (items used for attaching lures and bobbers to fishing line). What else would a Victorian Mermaid make her jewelry from? she’s gotta be resourceful!

This mermaid piece has created quite a stir…I have several orders in the making! Each piece is original and unique because I use authentic items from the sea. Each shell has it’s own story to tell! It is time consuming because I am very selective of the shells, and makings I use. I have to make sure this piece tells the story it was intended to, as art should!
all original pieces will be signed by the artist.

The Seashore Sweetheart

A recent design I had finished called “The Seashore Sweetheart.” This necklace combines the feminine nature as well as the wild adventuring side to us ladies. Complete with crab-claw clasp, linked mauve chain, pink faux pearls, pink shear bow, and a black bivalve seashell found by myself while beach combing. This is the authentic hand-crafted piece for any seafaring lady, beach lover, family Bar-B-Q by the pool socialite, or if you just think it’s cute and would like to wear it! Even if you’re as far from the shore as possible, all the more reason to bring a little of the sea-life into you’re life!
