This piece was started a few months ago. I wanted to make it in a box shape similar to the stag I made, but gave up on that idea. I’m interested in layering cut-outs to create scenes. Telling stories in silver (and other metals). I think I’m going to explore that a bit more in the future. I’m also figuring out that I’m more interested in jewelry art, as opposed to everyday, functional pieces – though I like making those too.
Here’s the little mermaid, finally done.
If you turn it around, she kind of disappears behind the seaweed – like mermaids obviously would do in real life.
