Magic Under The Sea II Mermaid Bracelet

Magic Under Sea II

The latest mermaid bracelet in my collection “Magic Under The Sea II”.  This piece was developed from my initial design (below) based on a photograph of my daughter.

The outline of the mermaid and seahorse was transferred to the surface of the plain wood bracelet and the background and inside of the bracelet was painted in a gorgeous aqua blue.

Her face, hair and torso were painted first, then her mermaid tail and the seahorse.  The background was filled in with a variety of sea corals and anemones in bright tropical colours.

Gold stars surround the mermaid and seahorse, showing the magic of their friendship.  Above them the water ripples sparkle in the sun.  The whole bracelet was sealed with multiple coats of high gloss lacquer.
