The Harlequin Beading Circle and staff watched Jeanne's amazing mermaid emerge over the course of about seven months.
The face is appliqué with size 15 Charlotte seed beads and SoNo thread. Seashells, sequins, nautical beads and more from Jeanne's collection adorn her. An unexpected and super-clever combination of aquamarine bubble wrap and matching tulle make up her fin tail. Her hair and body are fabric, and she's stuffed with ordinary cotton balls.
This special beaded mermaid is a gift for Jeanne's niece, who loves and collects mermaids.
