Mediterranean Mermaid is the second mermaid in my collection, but it will not be my last! This project was a really easy stitch and progressed rapidly. The beading took an entire week, and true to my nature was one of the changes I made to this piece. I omitted some of the beads, mainly the clear ones, to prevent the piece from looking too Gaudy. I was also disappointed in her hair color, a more mousy brown. So I stitched it in black silk instead, blending the richer brown with the black in areas around the blue.
