Mermaid Shadow Box Pendant
"Look at this stuff, isn't it neat, wouldn't you think my collections complete...." I couldn't help but think of Disney's Little Mermaid when I created this "Mermaid Shadow Box". This has been one of my more technically challenging creations, in that I made the box and myself. Cutting, filing and fitting the sides, was a new level in precision work for me. This box itself is decorated and imprinted with little sea shells. Inside it is a little treasure trove....a sea star, sea shell and freshwater pearl. The rim of the box is adorned with my little mermaid....all hand sculpted, carved and textured with a piece of coral from the beach. A liver of sulpher patina highlights and adds subtle color to the patterning and detail. A true one of a kind pendant!
The shadow box measures 1 1/4" in length, if you go to the tip of the mermaid's tail, it is just under 1 3/4" in length. The width is about 3/4" and the depth is between 1/4" and 1/2". I have it set on a beautiful 3 mm rolo sterling silver chain. It will come with an anti tarnish bag. You are purchasing the exact necklace in the photo.
