Mermaid sitting safely on a net. I selected this beautiful cameo from the Bimonte Family collection in Sorrento, Italy. The cameo is hand carved from the madigascariensis shell by Franco Balzano. The background deeper coffee colour accentuates the upper creamy layer that is the sculptural component of the cameo. On my cameo quest to Italy, I sought the most perfectly magical works created by the Bimontes. When I returned home to Vancouver Island, Canada, I endeavoured to make special jewelry not otherwise seen. For this mermaid, I created a silver bezel with a starfish design on the back. Next I crocheted fine silver adding garnets for rejuvenation and protection into a bracelet with a sterling silver clasp, and finally set the cameo onto it. My intention was to give the Mermaid a resting place, and to show the cameo simply yet in a manner that enhanced her splendour. I hope you like it. She is still available to go home with you. She currently resides at Lobelia's Lair, Nanaimo. She is very friendly. #madeincanada #nanaimo #vancouverisland #vanlife #vanisle #madeinitaly #madewithlove #cameo #bimontesorrento #whalesongstudio #artisan #artisanjewelry #sterlingsilverjewelry #sterlingsilver #crochetersofinstagram #crochetlove #lobeliaslair #lifeintheocq #nanaimo
