The Mermaid Chalice by KellyMorgenJewelry
The Mermaid Chalice
This is a unique piece I created recently using the lost wax casting method: it's made from solid sterling silver!  The mermaid is clad in an undulating dress of waves with tiny fish and shells around her, supporting the cup on her head.  It is for sale; just message me directly if you're interested!

I create each of my necklaces completely by hand, fabricating precious metals and scrimshawing recycled piano keys to form the faces of my women. Each tiny cameo holds a story within, exploring myths from around the world and empowering women to the magnificence they hold within.

I trained with a master goldsmith in Florence, Italy, as well as a Cherokee shaman and silversmith in rural Montana. My company Kelly Morgen Jewelry has been featured in national art magazine Ornament and is in the private collection of the Mucha family, actress Teri Polo, and fantasy authors Peter S. Beagle and Robin Hobb.
I've just updated all my necklaces with my newest versions, so you'll notice some big changes around my gallery!  I've added some completely new designs as well, so I hope you enjoy them.

Also you mention in your bio that you studied under a shaman in montana, was that Heyoka Merrifield? Your work resembles his a lot - I own three of his pieces.

Your work is absolutly-totaly-gorgeous!!!

Can I ask something that is really driving me insane???
The women's faces on your jewelry are enameled or carved into silver?
Either way, great artwork!!

I'm kinda scared to ask this, since I'm dirt poor lol, but how much would a commission for a necklace be? :)
