Gem-laden Mermaids

These brass mermaids hold a cache of lovely gems.

The mermaids themselves are about 1 1/2 inches tall, with their trove of goodies, about 2 1/8 inches from the top of her head to the bottoms of the juicy cherry quartz briolettes.

These have been in the Adorn Me inventory for a while, looking for a cluster of gems, and after receiving these cherry quartz rondelles and briolettes, they seemed like a natural match. It's all about the pinky-coral-salmon colors here, and boy, is there plenty of it.

Each mermaid holds a 10mm round of pinkish coral, a 10mm cherry quartz rondelle, a 14mm cherry quartz briolette, a white freshwater pearl, a salmon freshwater pearl, rose quartz, golden shadow swarovski crystals, moonstone chips, moonstone nuggets, salmon-colored glass Czech beads, copper Czech seed beads -- gathered together with copper wire, and all offset with a little pale aqua celestial larimar. They hang from two leverback brass ear wires, festooned with a couple more glass Czech beads.

These unique earrings will definitely garner remarks, and one thing we strives for is that even if you do happen to see someone wearing an octopus necklace, she won't be an opulent Oliva; even if you do see someone with a pair of mermaid earrings, they won't be an Adorn Me design, loaded with juicy gems. $38.00.
