On Etsy since 2016

My love of the Fantasy world!

My name is Judy, and I am owner/designer, and creator of Mermaid Sanctuary (Designs). I began my shop on store envy almost a 3 years ago and now decided to expand to Etsy!
I began my journey with mermaids, when as a child, my parents took us to the ocean every year. I would see these mystical beings everywhere, and fell in love!
I now was almost married for 20 years but never made it due to the death of my husband, and very 1st boyfriend, to cancer. With no life insurance, no job, penniless and an autistic 5 year old son to care for, I was in a rut! A family member gave me an old computer where I found Facebook. I decided to open a Facebook group and named it "The Mermaid Sanctuary", and my world changed! Having a contest for the group, I decided the winning prize would be a "mermaid crown", made by me! I never made anything of this nature before, but when the winner posted pictures of her prize, the messages poured in, asking me to please make them one too! Not being able to work outside the home because of my son and problems with grief and starting school, yes, it was a lot, I decided to open a shop. Sounds crazy huh! But I had found my niche! I have done quite well and have been in magazines such as FAE Magazine, had a 7 page spread, and the cover of Conceptual magazine, signed a contract with producers Sid and Marty Krofft, makers of Sigmund and The Sea Monsters, and made all the headpieces for Jouer Cosmetics "Mermaid Palette" advertisement spread, and the list goes on! I've also worked with some of the most influential photographers and models from around the world, not too shabby lol
So I found out, when one door closes, another DOES open!
I work hard, very hard, at my craft. I use quality items in my designs and everything is done myself, hence the 2-3 week waiting period for items that are custom or items in my shop that have sold and I have to restock. No two designs will be the same, and that's the magic! I also have branched out to my friends with horns and antlers, as well as the faerie realm! My latest additions to my shop are FAERIE WINGS!!! All galvanized steel frames and soldered veining, no tape here!
So, my friends, if it's quality over quantity, something "out of the box", and a real love of the work and the people who buy from me, you've come to the right place!
It's a pleasure meeting you!
Judy^^

Frequently asked questions
Can I have something customized?

If not a "custom order ", then please read the description. There you will find if a certain piece can be customized.

Do you take custom orders?

Yes!! I love custom orders! Please just click on the custom order link!

Do you ship anywhere?

I try, lol. If you order and I cannot ship to you or if shipping prices will be higher, I will notify you.

Do you accept returns?

No, sorry. Please be sure that what you order is exactly what you want! Be sure to read the description!

What if something arrives damaged?

Unfortunately I can not be responsible for damages caused during the shipping process. I make sure your item is wrapped as securely as possible, that's the best I can do.

What if my package never arrives?

Please check your tracking number or call your post office. If overseas shipping, there is nothing I can do. Please check with customs.

What if my package has custom fees?

The buyer is liable for all custom fees and taxes that might apply.

What if my item looks different than the photo?

Again, please read the description! Is this a remake? Or an original? If an original it will be exact. If a remake, it may have some differences. No two items,are identical!

Who makes these items? Do you have a staff?

No. Everything is designed and created by me and me only. I am a one woman show lol so please be patient.

Where are you located? Do you have a physical store?

Not at this time. I only work online but who knows what may happen in the future!

Do you give discounts?

I do run coupon codes from time to time, so stay in touch. If there is something you just can't live without, message me. I can't promise anything, or give huge discounts as these items cost me money to make, and that doesn't include my time, but I'm willing to see if there is something we can do to make your dream a reality! :)

Do you sell in bulk?

I am a one woman show, so bulk is difficult. If you would would like multiples, please message me and we can discuss it 😊
