Mermaid Spirals

I've had these stones for quite a while, but never used them because I wasn't sure about their crackly appearance. But, while going through my random leftover supplies a few weeks ago, I ran across them again and thought I'd see how they looked in context... and, I love how they turned out- something about the silver wire and the sort of rustic looking texture make me feel like they're seaglass even though they are quartz. They got their name because they remind me of something that would have fallen off an old ship, sunk to the bottom of the ocean, and been kept for years and years by a sea nymph or mermaid (because yes, it turns out, sometimes my imagination is cheezy like that).

So, cheezy story or not, here they are in all their glory, and you can see more about them at my shop...

Those are really pretty. The cracked look adds depth.

I like them.

These are very pretty, I love the way you made the earwires more angular rather than round.
