Children's Market

Brit's Earrings! Custom made for my cousin, but you too could own a pair! $16.00

Mackenzie and I are hosting our second Children's Market this Saturday, February 13 from 10-12 in our back yard! The market in December was a great success, we had hot chocolate, cupcakes, duct tape wallets, sculptey rings, homemade chocolates, surprise soap, and beautiful ornaments all handmade, sold, and bartered by the kids! This will be a monthly event so please contact me if your child would be interested in joining us.

And you can now purchase from The Gypsy Mermaid via Paypal! You will see the buttons to your right. Click on and a drop down menu will appear. These items and prices correlate with the photos seen on my blog! Of course please contact me with any questions or custom orders!

Thanks Y'all! Have a great day and think Spring!

This Blog is a Work In Progress just like my life! I am trying to get Paypal buttons to work. They do work, I had my first Paypal transaction! Can I get a "Hell Yeah!" Now the problem: I have more product and I am copying and pasting the HTML from paypal, and the same button, with the previous info keeps popping up on the blog. How do I get the new button with more awesome product to show up? I NEED HELP! I want this to work! I don't want to get a real job! I really love making things and selling them and people wearing them and why oh why!

MLK Day is coming to an end. I hope everyone had a peaceful day participating in a service project or at home with the kids. I had a great day with friends at the river picking up some trash. I say some because there was not much around!

Here is just a sample of my heart jewelry, I have earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

I would love to make you or your valentine happy on February 14. Although everyday is Valentine's Day at the Frank household!

Today's Hike and some jewelry................

Nicky and I went down to the Eno River today, just around the corner from our house. Parts of the river were still frozen, plenty of deer tracks, what I think to be coyote droppings, and beaver sticks galore. On the land stands this old tobacco barn.
As for jewelry, today's featured pieces are the circle choker. Dress it up or dress it down. Can be worn as a 16" choker or adjustable to 20".
Retails: $54
Whimsy earrings.
Pendant available with 16" or 18" chain.
Set: $32

I'M Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes! Welcome 2010, and a new decade for The Gypsy Mermaid to start rocking out on new designs and medium! I have been incorporating wool felt into my pieces and I am excited to preview some here.

I will be expanding my wholesale business this year and want to have more Girls Night Out jewelry parties. So if you know of any great shops or want to host a party, let me know!

I have begun work on my new spring line, think seed pods.......................

Thank you to all who supported me in 2009.
