Mermaid eggs are real. Ceramic mermaid egg shells are exquisitely decorative. They are ornamental, precious, fine, collectable items. Admire your handmade ceramic mermaid egg, or use it as a trinket, or jewellery box. Handcrafted in Subiaco, Perth Western Australia.

This mermaid egg is crafted from white, fine, sandy clay. This gives the egg a textured quality. The inside of the egg contains glass collected from the beach in Brittany France. The exterior is twice printed.

Mermaids lay two or three eggs in each clutch. Their nests are weaved from various types of coloured sea moss and resemble hanging pods. The pods have a small opening where the mermaids take turns to deliver sweet kelp jelly. The jelly is absorbed through the shells of the mermaid eggs and supplies nutrients to the eggs as they develop. At this stage the shells are soft and membrane-like. It is only after the mer babies are born, that the eggshells rise to the surface of the ocean, where they are exposed to air and rapidly harden to form stoneware
