I couldn't stop adding more mermaid touches to this necklace. There are bubbly Iridescent Dove Grey Swarovski pearls, vintage bead dangles, flowy silk ribbon, and of course a magical mermaid hiding in the clamshell pendant.

Vintage beads create an inspiring start for this necklace. Becky combined purple and light blue vintage beads in this design. Because these beads have a pearlescent theme, she went with a mermaid theme completed perfectly with the Green Girl Studios pendant at the center. You can watch Becky and Cynthia make this necklace and other pieces with the vintage beads on our Facebook page.
