Hand-Stitched Leather 3 Strand Mermaid Necklace

The art of lapidary and jewelry making lends to the use of many different materials, stones, leather, found treasure of all sorts and natural stone beads of all shapes and sizes. All inspire and are incorporated into many of our creations.  This hand-stitched leather 3 strand Mermaid Necklace is inspired by the wild sea, its' shorline and all of its' lore.  

The soft and pliable buckskin toned leather is hand-stitched together to creat a very comfortable and easy slip over the head style. Embelished with bits of fabric patchwork and different color stitching the upcycled leather has its own natural rustic tones. The neck-band is stitched to hand-smashed copper coins from which the 3 teared strands hang from; each strand knotted on silk thread from a pair of copper coins linked with copper wire and a drop of creamy blue agate.  A strand of pearls. A strand of abalone shell with shell heishi.  A strand of pink coral with pink fresh water pearls.   Slip on with a sundress and sandy toes ... Anything goes with this unique statement necklace, watever your mood may be!

Necklace hangs approx 20 inches long and approx. approx 40 inches around.
