Next time you're at the beach, keep an eye out for a shell with a hole in it to create this simple, pretty pendant.
Shell with a natural hole in it (or carefully drill a hole in a perfect shell you found...I leave that to you!)
Needle nose pliers
Acrylic paint in the color of your choice
Step 1: Paint the inside of the shell, and let it dry.
Step 2: Use the toothpick to paint along the ridges of the top of the shell, and then let that dry.
Step 3: Use the pliers to secure the jump ring in the hole of the shell.
Step 4: Turn your pendant into a keychain, a bracelet, a necklace...
Whatever you decide on, the mermaids will approve!
