This beautiful handmade silver mermaid layering necklace set is part of the ocean inspired jewellery collection.
For centuries humans have combed the beaches on relaxing sunny days to find the perfect shell to take home. Most will remember a leisurely stroll with grandparents along sandy beaches, who stopped suddenly to examine a particularly special shell, excited to take it home as a sentimental reminder of a day well spent with the grandchildren.
Why do we love seashells so much?
With their irresistible exotic shapes and intricate patterns its easy to see why seashell has inspired us for generations. Personally, I love the romance and mystery of seashells, the unknown journey they travelled across the oceans before landing on our shores. Who knows maybe the creatures that once inhabited these shells even met a mermaid or two…?

- A symbol of power, the scallop shell symbolises Aphrodite who was born from the foam of the sea and out of a scallop shell. Long associated with powerful women and the magic of the ocean, the scallop shell is often seen adorning mermaids in folklore.
According to the legend, an Inuit warrior found trapped light deep within the stones, he was able to free most of the light with his speer – the light flew into the sky and formed a beautiful aurora now known as the Northern Lights. However, some fragments of the light still remained trapped within the stone and formed the beautiful mineral gemstone – Labradorite.
The Northern Lights more formal name is Aurora Borealis which means “Sunshine Wind” in Greek – aptly named for the was the electric colours of greens and blues dance across the dance sky.
