n02 Sterling Silver White Pearl Necklace


Octopuses intertwine with the mermaid's hair weaving together a string of white cultured pearls.

Years of modeling figures while teaching the figure in clay has given Fred an artisan skill in carving the human figure. A mermaid fantasy gave the added dimension of incorporating artistic liberty into a composition, wild flowing lines. 

This is not a 3D CAD computer generated model thereupon carved by a machine. Our wax model is carved directly by hand from the imagination and contains all the irregularities of handcrafting. It was cast in sterling silver using the lost wax method. A complicated casting with numerous sprue requiring a laborious finish.

With consummate craftsmanship natural fresh water white pearls were strung together along a strand of high quality nylon coated wire containing 49 miniature strands of strong 925 sterling silver. Exquisite detail was maintained by careful craftsmanship through out the entire process and hand finishing embraced the final polish for an elegant mermaid jewelry necklace.
