- Coral Branch Mermaid Neckpiece
Coral Branch Mermaid Neckpiece
You don't have to be a mermaid goddess to wear this neckpiece, but you may become a terrestrial mermaid goddess if you do! Gorgeous, rugged, enormous branches of tomato-red coral are sure to make heads turn when you enter the room. This is legally collected and obtained coral. The multitude of textural holes, nooks and crannies dotting the surface demonstrate that the coral skeleton was not collected live and spent considerable time being bored through by other marine creatures. The brilliant color is enhanced by the alternating tiny turquoise beads to perfectly separate and enhance each branch. Smooth large matte black onyx beads comprise the back of the necklace for a comfortable fit. The leather loop and embellishment at the back further enhance comfort. The button closure is made from Sleeping Beauty turquoise and sponge coral, resting upon a a gently domed sterling silver saucer. The tribal vibe of the piece is further enhanced by the black leather dangles erupting from the closure that feature beautiful rustic-cut sponge coral and turquoise. Of course, if you prefer, these can be shortened by you after purchase to customize the piece to your body. The piece is strung completely on strong stainless steel beading wire - it even runs through the black leather loop closure. The piece will not stretch over time. This necklace is 18 1/4" long. As you can see from the last photo taken on the Size 2- Size 6 mannequin, it still fits quite closely around the neck, even on a small frame. Even though it might be created with a mermaid goddess as inspiration, this necklace is not intended to be worn in water! To properly care for it, I advise refraining from applying lotions, sunscreen, hairspray and other cosmetic products while wearing the necklace. If you do use those products, apply them first and allow time for them to absorb - then put on the necklace. After wearing, you can wipe the coral down with a soft cloth if you'd like. This is one of those very special pieces that might have the ability to make the wearer feel especially strong and confident - with a sense of playfulness. What a great way to face the world!
