Mermaid's Necklace

 
I still hadn't used all the ceramic pieces I made in this workshop. So this pendant was the trigger for the creation of the necklace I named Mermaid's necklace mainly because I couldn't shake off the image of Ariel's tail while working with the shiny green (bluish) scale resembling sequins.
 
Now, it is a pity the decorated pendant doesn't steal the spotlight, because I left my back on it - I am serious. The beading got the best of me. And still, I am not satisfied how it looks, so I think I am going to add some more beads or sequins to the tubes.
 
If you were wondering whether there is an end to my crochet tubes showing up here, well, I will have to disappoint you. There will.be.more.

Oh gosh, that is a lot of beading. Love the pretty aqua colours in this necklace, Maya. Just between you and me, I can't wait to see more crochet tubing from you. They are fabulous and how you turn these into a piece of exquisite jewellery always astounds me.

Your necklace you made is beautiful. I love the colors of it and it does remind me of a mermaid with that aqua color. This would be perfect for spring and summer. :)

Thank you Kim! I now think that maybe I should've added a little pop to it, like a splash of purple, to ward off monotony...

Maya Kuzman said...

Thank you Julie! It is spring/summer evoking... Glad you like it!

I think I know what you mean, it's very harmonious (tonal) nothing really stands out but the amazing necklace itself. Don't get me wrong - it's beautiful, but it could do with a special something...

P.S.: But you did get my mind whirling with your ceramic pieces...

Maya Kuzman said...

Well, yes. Something has to be done.

Your tube necklaces are always inspirational and you really reached the top with this one! If you want the ceramic piece to pop out more you should change the pastel tubes to a darker colour so the contrast is higher. I would leave it the way it is now, however, it looks perfect to me. :-)

Maya, I find that your necklace is perfect as it is now. I think it doesn't need anything more. I adore those beautiful blue and turquoise colors. I believe the beauty of this necklace lies in that: the shape and the colors. They speak for themselves. 👌 ✨ I'm always in love with your designs and creations. Have a great weekend, dear! 💕 🍃🌸🍃
