Mermaid muse is a dancin!!!!!

Good Morning!! I hope that the day started off great for YOU. Each morning that  I wake up then my morning definitely starts out great. HEY...I'm getting old. ^_^

I didn't get to post yesterday because I was busy working on some necklaces and ummmm well, I ummmm, kinda started reading a new book and well ummmm couldn't put it down..hehe!! I love to read but that's not what this post is about.  It's about showing you the necklaces I made. (with my mermaid muse happily dancin about)

Pretty, yes? It's a scallop shell found on one of our beach walks in Gulf Shores. Well, ok, it's actually two scallop shells found on the beach walk in Gulf Shores..HA!! The bigger one, I just fell in love with the colors that Mother Nature herself gave it. The deep red or rust and the light and dark pretty. Since it was a tad bit broken I decided to place a small scallop on top of it...with the same beautiful colors. It's attached to 26 inch hemp rope with a Tibetan charm holder with silver twisted wire running through the shell. Mother Nature placed those holes in just the perfect place, eh? It has a circle and bar closure.

This one I made using one of my broken moon shells found on a walk at Fort Morgan. It's attached to a 24 inch hemp rope on a Tibetan charm holder with silver twisted wire and hemp rope. Another one painted by Mother Nature. She so has the eye!!

Here's one of the olive shells that washes up already polish to perfection. (found at Gulf Shores) It's on a 24 inch hemp rope that has a barrel clasp closure. It's attached with hemp rope to a Tibetan charm holder and has a silver Tibetan turtle charm attached as well. This olive shell is a tad bit, I mean just a smidgen over 2 inches.

I think today I'm going to make a few pretty hair barrettes with some of the scallop shells. They are just so pretty and well....I think would look even prettier placed in someones hair. I mean, mermaids can't have all the lovely shells for just their hair.

Until next time............Hugs,


  1. Wow, what pretty trinkets you've made! I do love the colors in sea shells, the combinations are just so lovely. I don't know, if I was a mermaid, I'd definitely swipe the prettiest things for my hair, lol.

  2. Your necklaces are beautiful. I have a lot of family who live in Florida and I always enjoyed finding shells on the beach. My favorites are the coquina shells (Donax). I remember my grandma gluing open coquinas to thick paper and mounting them in a pretty frame. They looked like butterflies. I haven't seen a beach since 2008. That is WAY too long!

  3. Thank you so much Nic. OMGOSH...yes, it has been to long away from the beach. We came to visit here and just decided it was a place we wanted to stay..hehe (happens to a lot of folks)

    I hope you will come back and visit often. ^_^
