Sanibel: Dreaming of Mermaids

Today on HSN (TV programming and website, HSN.com), the featured Today’s Special item is a cuff design I created for Studio Barse.  This 40-piece collection is one of my absolute favorites, so I’m very excited that it was chosen!  The Sanibel collection is inspired by mermaids and a beachy look, highlighting the aquatic blues and sea life trends.  The designs feature a stylized shell motif, highly textured and oxidized details, and turquoise hues sparkling with touches of bronze.

I love the imagery and idea of mermaids, but rather than taking a literal approach I used textures to hint at the theme.

The Studio Barse pieces shown above are in bronze set with metal-matrix turquoise or Kingman turquoise stones.  Select pieces are also available in metal-matrix calcite and orange sponge coral.
