The theme was "Stormy Weather", and as I rummaged through my beads, stones and other focals, I found this lovely mermaid, made of carved wood, resting so comfortably and safely within what looks like a shell. So I made these waves of storm around her...the storm that made her decide to rest inside, and day dream of her merman. Kind of like what we like to do when the weather is stormy...snuggle inside a warm comforter and day dream. :-))))
The bead is carved wood, and the stormy waves are tarnish resistant sterling silver, and fresh water pearls.
