Artists and Shops

Welcome to mermaid blog post number 20. Thank you all for visiting my blog and for telling friends and family about it! Please join the blog using the link at the bottom of the page, and continue to comment and email.

In today's blog post, I would like to introduce you to a number of folks that have a talent for creating mermaid inspired works of art. I will also include shops where you can purchase such items. Mermaid art comes in many forms: paintings, tee shirts, jewelry, and decorations for the home.

Artist Jennifer OBremski
I met artist Jennifer OBremski at the 2011 World Mermaid Awards and Convention. Her artwork can be seen at her Deviantart page, and she has a number of unique designs in her CafePress shop. CafePress shops offer tee shirts, sweat shirts, canvas bags, coffee cups, and a lot more.

Seawear specializes in nautical, sea life and Celtic jewelry. I bought a mermaid pendant (#MERM035) from them a number of years ago, and wear it most every day... my way of discreetly telling the world that I am a mermaid.

Tidal Treasures
Sirena Solaris creates wonderful pieces of jewelry including earrings, necklaces, and pins. Many of her creations are inspired by the sea, and you can see her work at her Etsy shop, Tidal Treasures.

Another Etsy shop worth visiting is the one by Aqua Shop. In addition to jewelry, Aqua Shop carries a number of other unique items such as a mermaid growth chart for kids.

Rasnick Jewelry
David Rasnick features a number of mermaid and sealife inspired items in his online store. Rasnick Jewelry features handcrafted silver jewelry in a wide variety of styles.

When Mermaid's Cove Jewelers had a shop in downtown Mystic, Connecticut, it was one of my favorite places to visit when I was in the area. The downtown shop closed a few years ago, but you can still find them online.

Michelle Robison creates one of a kind mermaid themed jewelry including rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. More information on her designs can be found in a related MerNetwork forum post.

Magic Horizon by Ocean Oasis Tails is an online shop specializing in shell jewelry and tops.

How will you tell the world that you are a mermaid or merman?

Best wishes and starfishes,
