Using a vintage cardboard ornament this red haired mermaid is embellished with blue crystals, glass beads, sparkles and faux pearls. Blue is the color of protection and of the sea.
The piece is then given a few coats of a clear durable varnish to give it protection and a glossy, magical shine. The pin is about 5.5 inches long. A pin is securely glued to the back of the mermaid. A ribbon or cord can be attached to the pin to transform it into a decoration.
Makes a magical holiday stocking stuffer any time of the year. This Mermaid pin is lightweight and can be worn on a sweater, coat or hat.
According to Wikipedia "In some ancient fairy tales of China, mermaid is a special species whose tears can turn into priceless pearls. What's more, mermaids can also knit an extremely valuable material which is not only slight but also beautiful and translucent. Because of this, fishermen longed to catch them, but it's difficult for them to survive for mermaids' splendid singing can simply drag them to coma. Actually, mermaid is a symbol of wonderful creatures in Ancient China."

Who would be
A mermaid fair,
Combing her hair
Under the sea,
In a golden curl
With a comb of pearl,
On a throne?
I would be a mermaid fair;
I would sing to myself the whole of the day;
With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair;
And still as I comb I would sing and say,
"Who is it loves me? who loves not me?"
- Lord Alfred Tennyson, The Mermaid
