A Mermaid's Bangle

mermaid03 [button href="http://www.jewelrylessons.com/tutorial/coiled-bangle" size="large" textcolor="#ffffff"]Learn how to make a variation of this bangle![/button]

This bangle was taken straight from a mermaid's wrist: she made it with watery pale-colored stones -- aventurine, quartz, jade and chalcedony -- and wove everything together with strands of hair-thin silver wire.

And of course, a mermaid just couldn't resist adding little water critters...

All sterling silver wire and faceted stones.
