    I used e6000 to attach the abalone shells onto my new shell top, it really can be that good

    I used E6000 to attach my abalone to my top as well, it works great! I havent swam in it yet because it is to cold.

    holy-moly what nice tops ^^
    So. Me too, wanted to make a top. From shells. A year ago. I live in middle of land so wanted to order from faaaar far away. But it seemed that noone ship/offer shells over a certain size and umm.. i needed bigger ones and from a certain type, i dont know the english name. So I gave up on it. Then around spring time, one of my moms friends asked us "dont you wanna have TWO BIG SHELLS? I have them but have no place for them wanna give away". Out of nowhere, she wasnt aware of my intention to do anything related She bring'em, and they totally-perfectly fit but beeing too heavy and dont wanted to break or sg i made them into silicone, here they are, my very first mermaid top, my very first silicone work

    also the first, fast, blurry pics, pardon me.. from the outside it came out quite how i wanted, but the inside is a true mess funny accidnet, that the strips at the back reach over the fasteners, so they meet and stand up against each other, so it looks like I have a little fin on my back too
    hopefully, soon i can post better pics along with a tail im amking since a year for myself, a turquoise mineral color themed one
    cheers ^^

    Two I just finished. Might add red net halter straps to the red/orange/yellow one.
    And I don't think I ever posted the corset I made for a Christmas Boat Parade. HUGE project, over 2,000 sequins!

    Edit: the corset wasn't totally closed because that would have taken an assistant and my pirate was sleeping when I took the pic. I made a corset instead of a top because I figured the extra coverage would help keep me warm. Nope, haha, I froze my gills off!!
    Sorry for the bathroom pics!
    I'll see you at Kelpstock!

    Thank you so much! I seriously got in over my head on that corset...put in over 100 hours on it...the sad part is I'll probably never wear it again, it's so seasonal specific. Haaha! I made a matching light up crown too to go with it...was so fun wearing them for Christmas!

    I'm going to open an Etsy shop to sell tops, I'm currently amassing enough projects to give people a good idea of what I can create. So far I have 5 tops and the corset. I'd like to have a dozen or so examples before I open a shop. I notice there are not a lot of sequin tops out there for sale, versus shell tops.
    I'll see you at Kelpstock!

    Thank you, that's very encouraging!
    I'm making both dry and wet tops. With the exception of the corset, the ones above are water safe.
    I have around 90 different types of sequins and I water test each for color and sheen durability.
    I'm going to sell each for around $60 to begin.

    Thank you again, it really means so much to me to see some interest. I may just end up with a dozen tops I end up giving away! Hahaa, it's ok, either way, making these tops is a great hobby I love so if I never sell a one I'll still have enjoyed every moment.
    I'll see you at Kelpstock!

    I seriously fangirl over your creations.
    Actually I lurked Mernetwork for awhile before I joined and I joined because I wanted to see your individual scale tail come to fruition.

    Ooooh I love the corset! The gradient on it is beautiful!

    I need to work on my second top...I keep forgetting to buy the stuff I need for it. Winter seems like the best time for making mer-crafts to get my mind off of it not being prime swimming weather haha.

    SO not happy with how the corset gradient looks in pics. In person it looks so much smoother. Grrrr.
    Me too, I used my down cold months to produce produce!

    I don't think the seasonal theme is too obvious. Either way - that corset is absolutely stunning!! Great job. I agree about the lack of sequin tops. They always look so pretty - there definitely should be more of them!
