Mermaid by Hand ® is a reflection of myself. Growing up on the coast of Delaware, I was drawn to the sea at a very early age. To this day, saltwater remains an integral part of my everyday life, whether it is surfing or working up a sweat while practicing yoga.

Mermaid by Hand has been the creative outlet I had previously lacked, yet desperately needed. It has helped me grow in so many ways and has opened up an abundance of opportunities. After graduating with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and a Minor in Spanish, I knew it was time to expand my horizons. I took an internship in Brooklyn, New York with a vintage clothing company. I had the honor of working at the Brooklyn Flea Market each weekend where I acquired a newfound love for vintage and handmade goods, but city life quickly wore on me and I was being pulled back to the sea. After 3 months in New York I decided to move to Rincon, Puerto Rico, a small surf town full of creative energy. As my sea glass collection grew, I started making jewelry and it quickly turned into a small business. Over the past few years, my travels have taken me to Mexico, across The USA, Central America, The Caribbean, Canada, Europe, Indonesia and most recently, Southeast Asia. Traveling keeps me curious, inspired, and motivated. I currently reside in Southern California where I completed courses in Silversmithing in 2013.

As a small, independent business owner, designer, and maker, I strive to keep my pieces one of a kind, with sustainability in mind. Every piece is made in my home studio in Ocean Beach, California. All of the stones used are authentic and most are all natural. This is something that is very important to me. I work very closely with a lot of my stone and shell suppliers and have established some great relationships with them. I offer limited runs of certain designs, yet each piece is one of a kind due to the natural materials used. All of the seaglass used has been handpicked by yours truly or has been gifted by wonderful friends. All jewelry comes gift wrapped in a 100% recycled box and shipped in a 100% recycled and reusable mailer, made in the USA!

I hope you find a piece of jewelry that resonates with your own personal journey.


with love, Eliza Sloane

Ordered the boho cowrie ring with customized split band, and a hammered wave ring. She was so accommodating and pleasant to speak with. She is happy to make more customized pieces and make half and quarter sizes which was very helpful. There was a little miscommunication on sizing and shipping timing, but everything worked out in the end. I'm in love! Thank you Eliza! Beautiful work. Makes me feel like the mermaid I truly am.

I wish I could give a great review as the ring is pretty, but I had many issues. I ordered the ring on 5/16/16 and received it on 6/20/16. I had to send a message to seller asking where the ring was about three weeks after I ordered it and she said she didn't have any opals in stock. She ordered more and was very gracious about letting me pick the one I liked and sent me pics, but I was still annoyed at the lack of communication. The rind also has scratches on the silver part on the bottom area.

Please understand that this is a one woman show. I design, create, package, and ship all orders by myself…As well as run all social media platforms, and answer all Etsy messages and emails. Because of this, production can take up to 4 weeks before an order ships. I take pride in my quality, handmade jewelry and do not like to be rushed…However, if you do need something made within a specific time frame (for example, a birthday) just message me…I am very easy to work with and as long as your time frame is reasonable, I can try my best to make this happen!
