Mermaid's Tale

There is a lot of history behind this stunning necklace!

The pendant is made from 3 pieces of sea glass (including some rare blue) which I found on the beach on Martha's Vineyard in Cape Cod over nine years ago. Most of the sea glass found out there is from antique bottles and such. You can almost picture the perfume bottle or medicine bottle from which these might have come.

All these years later I finally have the tools to drill and mount the pieces. They are artistically hung from sterling silver bails, which hang from exquisitly dainty sterling silver chain, which is interupted every so often with gorgeous little blue chalcedony faceted rondelles.

This is a completely one-of-a-kind piece. I never have and never will make another one exactly like it, and you will be wearing an incredible amount of history as well!!

The necklace measures 17 inches (42.5cm) and adjusts up to 20 inches (50cm) and the pendant hangs at 2.25 inches (5.5cm) long and about .75 inches (2cm) wide.
