Starfish Mermaid Pendant with Moonstones
What is in a mermaid's treasure? Seashells? Shining gold doubloons from shipwrecks? Glistening pearls and sparkling gems? It's enchanting to ponder what treasures the siren of the sea would have discovered and brought back to her favorite hiding place. Mermaids never lose their appeal - they've captured our attention for centuries in stories and art. Mermaids seem to embody our curiosity and fascination with the mysteries of the sea - the vast underwater world that appears to have no end.
Our mermaid is seen here surrounded by seashells and starfish, with two round rainbow moonstones, like glistening bubbles. Her hair and body are carved from ancient mammoth ivory, which has lain in the ground for tens of thousands of years. Fossilized mammoth ivory is a finite material and prized for its rich creamy color.
