Mermaids tears-Sea glass post earrings
Price includes free shipping.
I love this little gems tumbled from the sea. They have a slight tint of green in them and truly look like mermaids tears.
If you have not heard of mermaids tears before here is some of the folklore:
Folklore has it that mermaids yearn for company below the water and lure men to join them-for eternity. One mermaid so loved a ship's captain that she didn't want to see him end his days in the sea. When the captain lost his footing aboard a ship during a storm he fell overboard, Rather than call him to her; the mermaid calmed the sea to save him. This was a tragic mistake for her. Even though mermaids were said to have all the powers of the sea within their grasp they are forbidden by Neptune to use them to interfere in human affairs. As punishment, she was banned to the bottom of the ocean, never again to swim to the surface-or see her beloved captain. Her tears are said to come to us as beautiful pieces of glass tumbled by the sea.
These can be yours. I have made a few pairs but I think they will be gone quickly.
