Here it is guys... the wait is over! As a big lover of Nutcase Fashion, designer Connie and I are pleased to bring you a giveaway which is sure to be knock-out! To launch Nutcase Fashion's Hi' Summer 2012 Collection, up for grabs is this amazing necklace Neon Mermaid - 'the' piece that sums up her latest range of statement jewellery.

Neon Mermaid is a stunning rainbow necklace of interlacing ropes, chunky chains, iridescent beads and spikes. It's dangerously stylish, fun, eclectic, on-trend and no doubt a head-turner piece!

Connie shares her imaginative vision behind her designs, describing Neon Mermaid as "a modern neon stained mermaid swimming around in the sun-kissed ocean, reflecting the most gorgeous colours imagined and revealing the hidden treasures from the undersea, the rays of dawn, the glimmering waves, fragments of memories from your favourite summer fling by the beach....."
