I have finished with the mermaid! She has her crocheted wig on and her bra and jewelry and rhinestones on her tail. i have beaded around the wrist to cover that seam. She has some glass fishes in her hair too but they don't show up in the pics. It is hard to see in the pics but the quilted stitching on the bottom fin on tail and the flukes is done with metallic thread. I use Glitter Thread by Superior Threads. It is very strong and hardly ever breaks.
