Who has not seen the movie of The Little Mermaid? It is a classic of Disney animation and is one of the oldest stories. As a child I always dreamed of being able to breathe under the sea and live Ariel’s adventures.
This Mermaid shell Set is inspired by my love for the sea life and The Little Mermaid film.
In folklore, mermaids were often associated with misfortune and death, luring errant sailors off course and even onto rocky shoals (the terrifying mermaids in the 2011 film “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” are closer to the legendary creatures than is Disney’s Ariel).
Many people like me are most familiar with the Disney version of “The Little Mermaid,” a somewhat sanitized version of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale first published in 1837. In some legends from Scotland and Wales mermaids befriended — and even married — humans. In the Shetland Islands, mermaids are stunningly beautiful women who live under the sea; their hybrid appearance is temporary, the effect being achieved by donning the skin of a fish. They must be very careful not to lose this while wandering about on land, because without it they would be unable to return to their underwater realm.
In this set the earrings are for pierced ears and the necklace is a short lenght one. Both of them have iridiscent color tones shells, that will change their color depending on the sunlight.
