I've had a bit of an obsession with Disney Couture for some time now. I don't know why but there's something kind of special and enchanting about adult-sized charms and jewelry based on one's childhood movie favorites. Disney fans and jewelry lovers alike must get in on the fabulous new collection. Just in time for summer, it's inspired by an all-time favorite: The Little Mermaid.
This new offering from Disney Couture offers a clever new take on ‘Under the Sea’ imagery, including treasure chests, shark jaws, coral, harpoons, sandcastles, and shells. Green fish scales, mother of pearl, gold - it's a treasure even Captain Hook would love (even though he's not part of THIS film.)
Characters from the film are represented in the whimsical collection, like Flounder and Ariel necklace and bracelet charms and a fantastic crystal-embellished tentacle ring pays homage to ultimate bad girl Ursula the Sea Witch. It's truly a great collection and a beautiful way to make a style statement this summer.
Made from genuine freshwater pearl, enamel, crystals, mother of pearl, gold plating and glass, the pieces range in price from $34-$160 and can be found in fine retailers everywhere and online starting mid-June (as in next week for those of us who like to plan our shopping expeditions.)
I might snag a few pieces for my wardrobe this summer (I love the braided cord charm bracelets). Maybe it's time to make a few Little Mermaid-inspired pieces part of your world.
