This week I finished painting this stunning Mermaid and Sea Lion wood bracelet. It features a mermaid with a long orange goldfish tail and matching flowing fiery orange hair. She is reaching playfully towards an Australian Sea Lion swimming beneath the teal blue ocean.
This painting was based on my original pencil drawing:
After I sanded the wood bracelet I traced out my drawing design onto the wood using graphite transfer paper.
I painted the background in teal blues and added some dark and light patterns to show the water shadows from beneath the waves.
Then I started painting the sea lion using shades of brown overlaid with washes of blue paint to blend it into the background.
Once I was happy with the sea lion I started painting the mermaid.
The inside of the bracelet is painted in metallic teal paint which has a beautiful shimmer. The orange of the mermaid’s tail and hair really pops against the teal blue background.
This mermaid bracelet is now Sold. To see more of my mermaid art please visit my Etsy shop:
Recently I painted this gorgeous Mermaid pendant, “Sleaford Mere”.
Hand painted on a lovely turquoise blue and creamy brown Sea Sediment Jasper with flecks of teal green, this Mermaid Treasures Necklace is inspired by one of my favourite locations on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, Sleaford Mere. Sleaford Mere is a beautiful salt water lake bordered by sand dunes, very close to the coast of Sleaford Bay. The colour of this beautiful lake changes each day, from bright turquoise to stormy green.
This magical mermaid sits curled up, with her arms wrapped around her beautiful long tail. Her tail reflects the colours of the jasper stone and magical stars surround her long wavy blonde hair. Her beautiful face looks towards us, her soft cheeks flushed with pink. This is a truly magical mermaid treasure!
Pendant height is 6cm (approx.) width 4.5cm. Presented on a beautiful 50cm length beaded necklace with teal, blue, green and turquoise glass and crystal beads, featuring a lobster clasp and adjustable length chain.

This week I finished painting a new Mermaid Jewellery Box “Rhiannon”. The design of this piece is based on my original drawing “Mermaid Riding a Seahorse”.
Hand painted on a handmade recycled wood box, this gorgeous mermaid rides upon a royal golden seahorse with highlights of green and blue. Her long rainbow tail of deep purples, greens and blues also has flashes of gorgeous gold. Painted against a background of deep black, the colours of this piece really shine.
Inside the box is also painted black, with a small round mirror on the inside lid, and lined with black soft faux felt so you can keep all your mermaid treasures safe! Box is sealed with high gloss lacquer for protection.
Box dimensions (approx.): 21cm x 14cm x 7cm. Features gold coloured brass hinges and clasp. This is a stunning one of a kind box!
