This is the smallest of my "wall" style mermaids. She measures 6.5" tall, and her tail fin span is 5". Her upper body and face are 100% silk fabric. I individually hand-drew, needle-sculpted and hand-painted her face. Her eyes and lips have a coat of crystal clear lacquer which gives her a very "life-like" look and shine.

Her tail fabric is a quality batik fabric in shades of aqua. She has a lovely, long flowing hairdo, which I designed out of two different Italian yarns. One is a soft, wispy "eyelash" style yarn, and the other is a sparkling/glistening yarn, which makes her look as if she just come out of the sea!
Her accents are real sea shells in her hair, necklace and waist accent, along with Swarovski crystals, and tiny glass seed beads. She has a loop on the back of her neck for either hanging on the wall, or to dance from a bit of clear fishing line or ribbon. She may also be displayed standing on a shelf, if she leans against something or is tacked to the wall. She is NOT freestanding. You may also move her arms up or down a bit, as well as her tail fins.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
