Mermaid jewels

I love making my own cabochons using nail polish.

You never quite know what you are going to end up with.

I love using blue mainly turquoise in colour.

This pendant and earring set reminds me of the ocean and makes me think of a mermaid’s jewellery.

    Love these aquatic blue-green colors, Louise! Your mermaid jewels do indeed reflect the colors of the ocean. And the silver creates a lovely setting for them.

  • Louise says:

    Thank you Rena, I must mention that I preferred the original photo showing the sea glass and feathers 😉 The pendant colours look good but who ever looks so close up when you’re wearing it? As you can see close up it doesn’t look as pretty 😅

  • Deborah Rodriguez says:

    What a beautiful technique, Louise ! Your wirework adds great dimension! Really pretty and unique.

  • Denise Fuson says:

    I love these! So beautiful and I love the colors.

  • Andrea says:

    I wholeheartedly disagree, I think close up it looks better! Most of us are fellow artists, and we can appreciate the technical skill that each part requires… that’s what I find especially beautiful. And this let’s me see your fantastic wirework.

  • Louise says:

    Thank you Andrea for your vote of confidence, I suppose it’s a typical trait of artists, we are always too harsh on our own work😉

  • Louise says:

    Thank you so much Deborah, very kind of you ❤

  • Louise says:

    Thank you Denise❤

  • Louise says:
