SILVER AND GOLD MERMAID NECKLACE
This beautiful mermaid was intricately carved in wax and then I cast her into sterling silver. The “moon or sun” depending on how you see it, hangs gloriously behind her and is handmade from brass. The length is adjustable 43-47-51cm choice. The mermaid symbol is identifiable to all of us who love the ocean. She protects and inspires, and is closely associated with healing, fertility, and sexuality. Homer first wrote about the sirens who lived on small islands across the Mediterranean, creatures who sang songs that lured sailors to shipwreck. But they didn’t sing promising sex or comfort — instead they promised divine knowledge. It was only in modern times that beauty became the sirens’ allure. In folklore, Mermaids are considered nomads who can alternate between living on land and their ancestral home. It was said that on a full moon, mermaids would emerge from the water, grow legs and walk into the towns to go dancing with reckless abandon.
