Two mermaid ornaments

Postby PixieKnoll on Mon Jan 10, 2011 11:29 am

Well, gang, these were supposed to be completed in time for Christmas. When the lady commissioned them from me, I told her that I wasn't sure I could accomplish that task due to so much going on during the holidays and trying to complete the other 2 major works I had on my table at that time too. So, she was graceful and said that it didn't have to be done by Christmas as she understood.

At any rate, there were finished about a week ago, but, have had delays on getting pics of them. Unfortunately, I just could not manage good pictures no matter what I did so here are the best shots I could get. They are mermaid ornaments. Supposedly she wanted them for a friend who has everything and so she wanted to do something different. LOL They are not my best in my opinion, but they are what they are in the end.

Enjoy!

The first one is Calliope. She is 8" long.

The second is Odessa. She is 7.25" long.

And here she is with her unruly hair. I decided to tie it back with some pearls. haha

They are super cute and charming, Lori. :clap: Were they supposed to be Christmas mermaids for the tree? :mrgreen:
Calliope is my favorite, I wish I had her hair... How did your client like them?

I guess I won't forget your mermaids for a while... when I opened your posting I rolled back with my office chair right over my cats tail. :dazed: Now he is sitting on my desk watching me accusingly like only a cat can...

Natalie, you are always so sweet. :-) Thank you very much! Yes, I believe they were intended to be ornaments for the tree...though I am not certain. All I was asked to do was to make 2 mermaid ornaments. LOL So, going on that, this is what I come up with. haha The client has not seen them yet; she should be picking them up soon though. I spoke with her today, and she had a mishap at her house that is devouring all of her spare time. I told her not to worry, that they were not swimming off any place any time too soon. roflmao

As for your poor kitty; I imagine he is not very pleased with you still. But, my thought is, if he is sitting up on your desk, he has either already forgiven you and is trying to show you that understanding affection that only cats know so well......OR, he is making darn sure he has a close eye on you and his tail to be certain it doesn't happen again. hahaahahahahaha Poor kitty. <3

Hello there, dear Lies! I have not seen you about in a while...it's good to see you. :-D Thank you for your nice compliment. haha I'm just glad that SOMEBODY likes them at least a little. ahhahaahahaha You know how it is, you think you could have done better, blah blah blah, but I didn't have a lot of time to get them done. :( It was the best I could manage on a short time period. Oh well...but thank you very much. <3

Amy, you are too generous. hehe I'm glad that you like them. :-D The client has not seen them yet. I had thought they would be delivered today, but the client is dealing with a few things so she is not ready to get them at the moment. She is a good woman and I know she'll be about soon to collect. haha I hope she likes them as much as you do. <3

Hugs,
Lori

Patrizia, you really are too kind. <3 I'm so glad I have all of you girls for morale support because these two mermaids ...I was just not feeling them the entire time I was working on them. They were a "forced" project, and I hate having to work like that.
