Inspiration from under the sea...

This necklace was created by crocheting bronze non-tarnish wire while weaving glass beads through the strands in various hues of blue, sea green and lavender. The effect gives an under the sea look. Perhaps buried treasures hidden in the coral reefs. Could this necklace be a romantic gift from Captain Jack Sparrow?

I always loved the soundtrack from the Disney movie The Little Mermaid. (Not a fan of the movie. Walt would not have been impressed by the computer animation.) However the lyrics of Under The Sea bring images of swimming through the coral reefs with sea turtles and buried sea treasures.

This bracelet was created by crocheting bronze and silver plated non-tarnish wire while weaving glass beads in various hues of blue, sea green and lavender. Perhaps it fell off a mermaid's wrist while she was playing with dolphins.

In ancient Greek mythology, Amphitrite was a sea-goddess and wife of Poseidon. Of course living with Poseidon must have been trying. So sometimes she would sneak away on holiday with her girl friends and a good bottle of sea wine. Splashing to fun music and dancing the night away. Girls with flippers just want to have fun.

These earrings were created by using recycled blue Capiz shells rescued from a shell beaded curtain that was being tossed away. (There should be a rescue shelter for sea shells.)
I crocheted strands of delicate pink silver plated wire with sea green glass beads. A delicate blue sea shell hangs from this strand.

Under the Sea lyrics from
The Disney movie The Little Mermaid

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else's lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin' for?

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'
Full time to floatin'
Under the sea

Down here all the fish is happy
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain't happy
They sad 'cause they in their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who's gon' be on the plate

Under the sea
Under the sea
Nobody beat us
Fry us and eat us
In fricassee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under the sea we off the hook
We got no troubles
Life is the bubbles
Under the sea
Under the sea
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here
