‘Mermazing’ Gifts by Seaside Designs

It all started with sea glass collected from Truro beaches and a few spools of silver wire. Rebecca Townsend created ornaments by wrapping swirls of wire around the sea glass and gave them away as Christmas gifts. “Everyone loved them so much, I decided to sell them at a craft fair and I sold out of them,” says Townsend. The Truro native soon added soaps, wrapping paper and whimsical greeting cards (“You’re Seasational”) to the collection and Seaside Designs was born in 2003. New this year: Lightly fragranced rollerball perfumes with names like “Salt,” “Sand” and “Mermaid,” similar to her soap line, and new colors for her glittery mermaid earrings attached to cards that say “You’re Mermazing.” —Lisa Leigh Connors
