Offspring of the Sea

Hello sweet love – I speak to the sea,

It’s been a long time since we cordially met

Since your skyward tendrils dropped salt crystals upon my pale skin

Which by morn – would be kissed by the sun

But still at night – I liked you best

When the Moonflowers bloomed beautifully, yet deadly

And the scent swam through the air

Swooping down and cradling me like a lover

Where then – you proceeded to drop me into the velvet waters

The freedom seeps into your bones

And then, there forever – where loneliness keeps you company –

You will be an Offspring of the Sea…

The Victorian Sea Gem

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


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.
