Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really!?!?!?!!!! Fantastic! Only Barbara would attempt the detail accomplished on this piece. Wow.....so unique and so beautiful. Excellent craftsmanship. Just absolutely fantastic. And, I waited forever for this to go on sale, which it did for a short time. Love this piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Mermaid Enhancer I was wanting Barbara Bixby to do a mermaid piece and was thrilled to find it. The piece is stunning and I get compliments wherever I go. The color and textures in this piece is fantastic and would love to have this in a ring. Being a Pisces and a water person, I am very happy with my sea maiden aka mermaid. I pair this enhancer with the Honora teal pearl necklace for a really cool look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breath taking! WOW! I bought this lovely piece for my upcoming birthday and then told my husband how much I love his gift!! He was relieved he didn't have to worry about what to get me this year! She just arrived today and all I can say is she is BREATH TAKING! There is so much to look at and I know everyone will ask about her so I am memorizing all the beautiful stones! There are so many stones and the total carat weight looks much larger than 1.05 cts. In addition, the beautiful enameling and abolone shell hair are perfection! There is lots of detailed silver work that is iodized so you see every little detail! Then it is topped off with the dangeling black pearl! She even has an 18kt gold earring dangeling from her ear! You will not only love to wear her, but you will love all the conversations she starts. Just remember all the different stones that you'll want to point out. WOW again Barbara! She is perfection and thank you for sharing your artistry and lovely back stories with QVC customers! Everything you do is loved and appreciated. Especially by this 'Water' sign girl!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from did not look like an expensive piece of Jewelry Anticipation for this Mermaid Enhancer is the only thing to describe how I felt when it was ordered. Underwhelmed when I opened the box. The silver did not have the look of silver but rather it looked like a costume piece of Jewelry. Sadly will be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just beautiful......... This mermaid is one of my most favorite Bixby pieces. Love her creativity! It is done to perfection! I am very picky with my jewelry and could not find anything I didn't like. I will love this piece for many years and then pass it down to my daughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Birthday Gift Ever! I received this lovely lady of the sea for my Birthday from my husband and I just am amazed of the detail from the dangle of her earring to the gorgeous stones and accents throughout this subject. My Sister who passed away from ovarian cancer this past December collected mermaids, and everytime I wear this piece, I will have her memory with me. Barbara you couldn't have made a better tribute for me, and I love my husband for selecting a memory of a Sister's bond to each other.
