I try not to do kitschy (sp?) but I went with a mermaid theme for a co-worker. I really wanted to do a Sailor Jerry mermaid theme, but the necklace was for her sister that has small children. I even made a bag for it, but it was ruined when some hummus spilled on it. (the garlic smell just wouldn't come out!) Oh well.
It's a double sided necklace so that it could be possibly hung in her sunroom instead of worn. It's a bit thicker than I usually make them, but I used bits of sheet copper for great depth in the piece.
