I have been digging through my broken shell stash and found a beautiful broken murex (lace shell) and immediately I knew what I wanted to do with it. It was perfect for a sleeping nook......a sleeping nook for a wee little mermaid.
I love how she turned out. The shell attached to the murex is a broken crown conch shell. Her hemp bracelet has a tiny little venus shell. Her crown has what I think is a broken piece of venus shell, two tiny scallop shells and a teeny tiny lucine shell.
She is completely hand sculpted (without the use of molds) and was detailed using fine MICA powders and acrylic paints. Her hair is pulled dyed wool. Her necklace I made using tiny pearl beads from a vintage wedding veil.
Now....let me dig back through that goodie shell basket and see what else I can discover.
Have a wonderful Friday and until next time.............Hugs,
