Finally- She's Done!

Finally, I decided how to string my fabulous mermaid gal:

I did a simple chain with tiny shell accents. I didn't want to do anything too complex, as I didn't want to take away from the mermaid herself. I think she came out great (even if the pictures aren't spectacular). I even made my lazy self list her on my Etsy site. Yeah!

Vacation Time

This week is February vacation for the kids and my parents have taken them to Vermont for the week, leaving me and my husband home alone. Yipee!

So, with some free time on my hands this week, I've vowed to do some serious crafting. Today I went to the craft store and got some new beads, clasp and findings to inspire me to get started. I'm hoping to have some pieces completed and listed on my Etsy site by the week. Here's to some good craftin'!

The Mermaid

I've been doing my best to keep busy lately, especially with my new animal forms. My most recent work is an enchanting mermaid:

She's taken a lot of work, especially the scales in the tail, as each one is studded with a tiny seed bead. In her heart lays a piece of the ocean, a small shell I collected this summer on the beach, and then hand drilled especially for this piece. I'm very happy with how she turned out.

Now the only thing that remains to do is to figure out the best way to string her as a pendant. Hopefully she'll be finished and listed on Etsy by the end of this week.
