Everything You Need for the Mermaid In Your Life On Etsy. These are my Top 10 favourite handmade items from Etsy sellers around the world that will help the mermaid in your life - young or old, to achieve their mermaid goals!
I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful nine-year-old niece who has been big into mermaids for a while, so I like to keep an eye on all of the wonderful mermaid items Etsy sellers have to offer. I hope you enjoy these top 10 mermaid finds I've curated.
What is it about mermaids that hold such appeal? Their secretive nature? Their other-wordliness? I have tried to collate some of the best mermaid items for all ages that capture this..
I know most Top 10s start at number 10, but I'm doing this one the other way round because I'm so excited to show you my first Etsy find!
I am so happy with this purchase and I'm making it my number one as I have direct experience of this wonderful seller. The doll kit arrived sooo quickly, with totally reasonable postage prices from the US.
This was the perfect package from the otherworldly, intricate illustration to the tiny star shaped split pins (or brads) which come included in the kit.Paper Doll Kit, from £7.46 by cynthiathornton
I absolutely adore cynthiathornton's handcrafted necklaces too. Look at these beautiful necklace pendants:
I love the whole look and feel of this shop - so unique and so beautifully made, it is treasures like this shop that keep me enamoured with Etsy.Beautiful Handmade Gifts from cynthiathornton, also known as Green Girl Studios. Cynthia also has a website here.
This is a truly special doll with so many beautiful little details and touches such as the embroidered tail and the flower crown.
This beautiful and unique fabric doll is one of many gorgeous handmade dolls made by Gemma Clough from UK Etsy shop, GemBobsCrafts.
Gemma also has a great blog with some really interesting articles about life as a craft seller.
These mermaid hair clips (or barrettes) come in a range of sizes, starting at £3.50 from Forjustoneday, another wonderful UK based Etsy shop selling handmade children's party and dress-up supplies: check out these amazing sequin mermaid tails! I love their pirate party gear too!
At £1.80 each, these would make great party bag fillers. BabaRoo sell a wide range of pretty stationery, mirrors, wall art and make-up brushes.
Perhaps for an older mermaid with more sophisticated tastes, this Sterling Silver necklace hints at the very slightly darker side of the mermaid myth. Jesa Marshall & Al Marshall have given all of their jewels sweet backstories and characters. This mermaid is named 'Muriel'.
"Muriel and her pet starfish Bob. Muriel and Bob have been friends for years and love nothing more than hanging at the beach and catching some waves. Muriel often has a secret hankering for fish and chips...she knows its wrong...don't tell Bob."
For little mermaids, these shimmering leggings from LacedWithLoveShop, USA are made in every size from newborns to 10 years. Some of the ranges also come in adult sizes!
I just love these mermaid bracelets from stavri, Greece, who offers lots of other charming jewels for all ages, many with a seaside theme.
For those who like the vintage look, there is this Victorian-looking cameo ring from TemporalFluxMermaid Cameo Ring, £8 by TemporalFlux
The ring is adjustable and depicts a beautiful mirror-gazing mermaid.
Mermaid Hot Chocolate Kit, £5 from MapleMollys
This is such a great idea! MapleMollys is another UK Etsy shop selling all sorts of luxury chocolate gifts. I personally love bonanza kind of gifts: lucky dips, selections, surprise boxes.. and I would have been thrilled to receive this as a sweetie-loving kid. They also sell vegan chocolate kits and novelty lolly pops.
This magical print by Rachel Byler, is titled 'Drifting' and captures the ethereal, watery beauty of the mermaid.
She offers many natural world and literary inspired prints with fast shipping and in a range of sizes and paper finishes.
Rachel also donates a monthly portion of the proceeds from TheColorfulCatStudio to a variety of environmental groups, such as Whale and Dolphin Conservation. You can read more about Rachel's work on her website and blog.
