Whimsical Wire Mermaid

I love whimsical things and I enjoy anything to do with the sea, so making this mermaid came naturally.
I used 16g sterling silver for the frame and 26g to wrap the frame, 28g for the weave and 24g for her hair.
Great piece, curious how much time this one took you. Certainly makes me want to pull out all the summer jewelry.

Thank you, It takes me a good 9 hrs . But who is counting! When I make jewelry I lose all concept of time, it is like I’m in sensory deprivation.

I love mermaids… The nine hours you put into her really paid off, she’s great!
