The finished mermaid necklace  


Detail of the mermaid

Detail of the clasp and the dutch spiral and spiral rope.


I used SoNo thread for all the weight bearing parts, and silamide for the hair. The SoNo thread is great. Definitely worth trying out.

Re: Wow
Thank you. :) I'm really happy with how it turned out, and how much fun it was to make.

Well done! You are very talented, my friend. Don't part with her too easily.

She's gone, I didn't cry, but I really felt like it. Do you have AIM or yahoo messenger? My id on AIM is SKerri13 and on yahoo it's shalas_beads. I'd really like to talk to you about potential trades/orders.

Hey! I would love to work out a trade! I'm really bad at that messenger kind of stuff. I had something once... I think there was a picture of a person running or something like that? Or was that something else. It was a long time ago. I think it made my computer freeze. I'll ask Ry to help me set it up again after I feed him some dinner.

Thanks. *grins* it was loads of fun to make. Now I'm finishing the hat I started and wondering how anyone thinks knitting is relaxing. *laughs*
