White Mermaid's Tear on Copper with Brass Prongs

Regular price $40.00

 I got the Mermaid's Tear (aka sea glass) from my niece who collects them along the Lake Superior beach.  I set it with brass prongs on copper that I textured with vintage lace & patinated with liver of sulfur.  Folklore suggests that sea glass are the tears shed by mermaids caused by Neptune's jealous wrath when they fall in love with a sailor.  For the necklace chain, I used  brass elongated cable, with an opalike gemstone bead at the back.  The necklace measures up to 21” around, but can be worn shorter. The pendant measures 1.75” x 1”.
