Take a trip to the Cornish Coast and learn all about the folklore and mermaids of the sea - Our next stop is the ‘The Mermaid of Zennor’.
On one sunny Sunday at the small church of Zennor in Penwith a man named Mathew Trewella was singing in the choir when he saw a beautiful woman with long golden locks and flowing dress, her distinct beauty standing out to him. For a few weeks he continued to watch this unknown woman who came to hear his sweet soft songs until on the final time Mathew was seen walking up to the mysterious woman and disappeared into the distance with her in the direction of the sea. After this Matthew was never seen again but it is believed from many tales of passing ships that he lives along the coast deep down in the sea with his beautiful mermaid wife.
If you take a trip to the church, you can see the carvings of the mermaid on one of the church benches and our The Mermaid Of Zennor - Mineral Mica Flake Bundle is inspired by the beautiful colours of this mermaid’s tail.

Used for decorative purposes since 10,000BC, mica is a silicate mineral and we're proud to say that our flakes are ethically-sourced and cruelty-free. These lustrous flakes can be used in all of our resins, we like to sprinkle these onto wet resin at the end of designing to give a final flourish, as well as our JESMONITE to provide shimmering colours and effects. Use them in epoxy resin, jewellery making, artwork and card-making.
