Artprize 2012 Project 'Mermaid" Begins - January

My first attempt at a sculptural beaded piece, I began with a clay model to get the right proportions for the body. Next I sewed a bust form and then cut out the backing for the dress/tail. The beading has begun with the dress design, had to redo the crystal bust as it was too bland.
