Tranquil Mermaid Mermaid Pendant with Triangular Bail Stone in Sterling Silver
The mermaid featured here is Tranquil, who soothes emotions and helps to let the stresses of the day drift away. Scrollwork is featured on both the bail of this fantasy pendant as well as the shape of the fins and tail, which tie the two together to make a truly magical piece of fantasy jewelry. I originally designed the mermaid to hang upside down from her tail, but she works equally well to hang from her hair, please select your preference. A faerie of the sea, this beautiful mermaid pendant is a part of my Frolicking Faerie Collection of fantasy jewelry. The 5 winged faeries available are: Brave, Joy, Clarity, Spirit and Bliss, they are located in the faerie section of my shop.
The overall length of this artisans pendant is 3 inches, with the Tranquil Mermaid being 2 1/8 inches tall and the bail is 3/4 of an inch wide. The triangular bail features an 8mm round light green Prehnite cabochon. If you have a stone in mind that isn't listed contact me and I'll see if I can get it for you. The bail will accept a thick 4mm cord or chain and is Pandora friendly. A woven black leather cord is included with the handmade fantasy pendant.
As with all of my work this piece of fantasy jewelry is my original design was created using the lost wax method. I first start by doing a detailed drawing of my intended subject. Then I sculpt my design in wax. I start with overall shape and form, making sure all the individual pieces are proportional to each other, then adding detail such as facial features, fingers, hair and applying individual scales on the tail. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, rough polished, linked together, soldered, patina applied, stone set then completed by a final polish. It is a time consuming process, but one that I thoroughly enjoy. For more detailed information on my wax sculpting and casting process go to www.mystcswan.biz and look at the "Creation Process" and "Wax Sculpting" sections. The only purchased parts of this handmade mermaid necklace are the stone, jump ring and leather cord. A 16 inch inexpensive black cord is included, for a high quality sterling silver chain please see https://www.etsy.com/listing/244190048/interlocking-sterling-silver-chain or https://www.etsy.com/listing/244190540/woven-style-sterling-silver-chain
There is also a tube shaped bail without a stone as well as necklaces with single or multiple faeries. Want matching earrings? I have those too. See the Faeries section of my shop.
If you love mermaids and everything nautical, handmade craftsmanship, the world of fantasy, Renaissance or just want to take a little bit of peace and tranquility with you into your day, this is the pendant for you.

Lovely necklace, the bale and mermaid hang perfectly from my own silver chain. Well packaged and fast delivery. Thank you also for the crystal that was added to my parcel.

This is a must for any mermaid lover. I was debating whether to just get the mermaid or also the gemstone bail. The bail adds a nice touch and is a weighty piece of silver. I would recommend it.
