This is a wonderful tutorial. The instructions are clear and the photos are a terrific help. The download arrived very quickly and the seller was wonderful about answering questions before the purchase and after.

Thank you for visiting!

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find at the sea.

Making dolls is a passion that caught me by surprise. The original idea for my shop was to craft doll-house furniture and other small fixtures from the seashells that I've collected for decades. Since mermaids would be the perfect dolls to enjoy these creations, I started experimenting with doll-making. Making mermaids grew into an obsession! The fun of it made me want to share the process as much as the finished dolls themselves. Shell-crafting is still an important part of my shop, but the mermaids are equally so.

As a shop owner, one of the best delights of the Etsy experience is getting to know my customers. Thank you for keeping me inspired!

Thank you for visiting my shop. I hope you find something here that inspires you and brings you joy!

My shells come from vacation trips to Texas beaches as well as the California and Oregon coast, Florida, Mexico, and Honduras. They also come from other beaches around the world as contributions from my friends and neighbors (who feed my habit.) While I don't always know their origin, I've learned almost everyone's garage has a shoebox full of vacation shells!

I would love to do a custom order for you, so if you have your own box of vacation shells and would like me to create something, please contact me through Etsy and let's plan it!

Custom mermaid orders are also welcome. Please let me know if you have a specific color request for eyes, skin, fish scales and hair. Or, you can just name the island or ocean and I will design her.
