The Mermaid, Merboy and Merbaby Applique

"la sirène et ses enfants"...the mermaid with her merchildren...
...this applique scene took me four days to create from sketch to finishing beadwork.
this is the back of a hooded jacket i'm creating.

the mermaid is holding a 'star of the sea' sceptre which can grant her children's wishes and also holds the power of divine love. the starfish has 7 legs, representing the Seven Seas. her little merboy is getting ready to blow Triton's horn shell, hopefully to calm the seas! the merbaby is holding out a vintage mother of pearl 'pearl' for the little curious fish.

i love adding beadwork/beads to my applique work as it gives it dimension and enlivens things.

this is my passion...just sharing!

once the jacket is completed, i'll add more pics.

This is my first blog entry. Greetings and Blessings to All! xo lily
