As soon as I saw the announcement for May’s EtsyBeadweaver’s creative challenge, “Nautical,” I knew right away I had to make something featuring a mermaid. Is it any surprise to any of you, really? My obsession with the fantastic seductresses hasn’t exactly been hidden.
I wasn’t sure if my little brick stitch sculptured design would end up being a part of a necklace or bracelet at first, or perhaps a key chain, a bookmark, or something else entirely. I decided I like the way she looked at a slant, as an off-skew pendant for a chain necklace. So my mermaid swims along the metallic blue chain, swimming along her wearer’s neckline.
My simple mermaid necklace, is nothin’ compared to what some of the other beadweavers in this fabulous team have come up with. You can check out all of the amazing entries and vote for your favorite on the EtsyBeadweaver’s blog by clicking on the mosaic image below:
