She haunts the watery deep, easing the passage of those lost at sea,
the ones who did in fact go down with the ship,
or were washed overboard.
Another bracelet in the Mermaid series. This one looking like Old Bones. Which is not a bad thing. Perhaps this mermaid saved them from a worse fate? Maybe the bones are left behind when their earthly owners no longer needed them. Much better to adorn a Siren of the Sea than the belly of a beast, don’t you think?
Though this bracelet is very simple, simplicity, in this case, is absolutely what is called for. The base beads are topaz with an aurora borealis finish, while the daggers are mottled cream and tan. There is quite a bit of interplay between the opacity of the bones and the watery highlights of the seed beads, as well as movement when the daggers wave too and fro. The whole is closed with a nice hefty slide lock clasp.
Why no daggers near the clasp? Well, it’s ergonomics you see. You have to be able to wrest your wrist at some point during the day, don’t you think?
