Mermaid "Encounter" Fantasy Jewelry Pendant in Sterling Silver
This stunning fantasy jewelry pendant depicts an unexpected encounter between a handsome man and seductive mermaid. The waves crash into the rocky cliff while a fish swims beneath the surface of the tidal pool where the mermaid dwells. A traveler looks down at the sea just has the mermaid rises above the water's surface . . . what is the rest of the story? It's up to you to finish the tale.
I started by creating a detailed pencil drawing to refine my idea and layout the proportion of the piece. The next step was to sculpt everything in wax, this was a very time and labor intensive process; including applying one scale at a time to the mermaid and other exacting details like facial features. While close attention was given to these fine points, I also took great care to ensure the musculature was accurate and the overall design pleasing. When sculpting was complete it was cast using the lost wax method in sterling silver. A patina was applied in two parts to give some areas a darker finish than others, providing for contrast and interest. This was followed by hand polishing and an application of Renaissance Wax to protect the finish and guard against tarnish.
The pendant is 1 5/8 inches wide by 3 1/8 inches tall. A braided leather cord is included. The "Encounter" pendant turns into an amazing necklace with my Vine Entwined Neck Wire available in the Designs Inspired By Nature Section of my shop.
