About

Art from Scratch.

I have been imagining, designing, creating and selling art to wear clothing and accessories since about 1990. I opened my Etsy shop in 2008, before things really got going, and enjoy relationships with customers from all over the world.

Most of my pieces are constructed with 'found objects'.... used garments, fabric remnants, vintage & antique linens and lace. I am inspired by Nature, myth, fairy tales, archetype, alchemy & magic and infuse my passion for 'otherworldly' interests into the clothing and jewelry I create. Most of the pieces I make are uniquely one of a kind and cannot be reproduced, although I am happy to design custom pieces on request.

I am primarily self-taught and began with only very rudimentary sewing skills. I have taught myself the necessary skills for jewelry and garment construction over the years as each design dictated or required.

When I'm not designing and sewing, I work as a Jungian/depth psychotherapist in private practice which allows me to delve into the same passions (dreams, myth, alchemy, etc.) while supporting women in their personal and spiritual growth.

I am grateful for the many opportunities I have for creative self-expression and especially grateful for the support of so many women around the world. It is my hope that my creations bring beauty, unique expression, empowerment, and magic into the lives of those who wear them!

    I design, sew/create, market, package & ship my art to wear clothing and accessories. I employ one additional part-time assistant who photographs, measures, and helps put finishing touches on garment construction.

Welcome to Blue Mermaid Designs; artisanal-created, original, art to wear clothing and accessories for women. All clothing is crafted from original designs and is cut and sewn one piece at a time for a truly unique finished piece. Most pieces are crafted from natural materials, or blends, many are hand-dyed, recycled, or vintage. Jewelry and accessories are crafted from natural gemstones and mixed metals and are created to compliment the style of the clothing which is "vintage-zen" inspired.

My mission is to create unique, soulful, art to wear that is both beautiful and functional; that flatters the wearer and is comfortable and easy to care for.
