OOAK Fantasy Doll Princess Fairy

I am finally back in my art studio creating my dolls. I had a long break.  It was due and allowed me to regroup. I also moved my art studio. I had to do a lot of work setting up my new location.

Here is one of my latest dolls.  She is a soft sculpture. Meaning the head and limbs are sculpted and then the costuming is constructed. I really love these because they are not as heavy as a full sculpture.  So they can be displayed in many versatile ways without worrying about the weight of the doll.  They ship easier as well.  They are less fragile.  Tiny areas like fingers and ears are still fragile but overall I find this technique just more durable for fairy sculptures. I plan to do more of these.  I will alternate with this style and full sculptures depending on size as well.

She is sold.  I really love this one.  I named her Lunaria Aveline.

My new Online Shop is Ready!

I finally have my new home/shop for my dolls and other fairy goodies.  This site is totally free and I found it very simple to use.  Not as robust as Etsy but I think it will work just as well.

CLICK HERE to visit my new shop online. Paypal is still my method of payment.

The site is called Shophandmade.com.

 I am excited to use this site since it allows me to have complete control over my store.  This is how Etsy started until they got too big and (in my opinion) they lost the ability to accommodate sellers and made it more difficult to sell on their site.

I have a few items listed and a recently sold doll as well.  I have made some adorable fairy furniture and really enjoy this. My intention is to create some fairies for the furniture as well.  Here’s a few of my magical fairy bed sets with matching side tables for each.  I already have listed some of them in my new online shop.  I have a couple more to add yet.

The furniture is made using all natural twigs and vines and wood.  Each bed takes about 11 hours to make.  I cut all the wood pieces and design it by hand.  They are one of a kind and no two are alike.

I called this one Citrine and Turquoise.  The end table has a lamp and sculpted clay vase and flowers.

I called this one Midnight Blue. I love this one! Deep rich blue. It is magical. The end table has vase with flowers and a fairy crystal ball.

This one is a half canopy daybed style.  So sweet.  Matching end table has a lamp, a dragon fly and a reading book.  Adorable!

These are so much fun. I would love to be a fairy and sleep in these magical beds!  THese are all currently listed in my new shop online!

I have also made a chair, a bench, a sink, a patio set.  More blog photos of those items to come and those will be listed in my shop too!

Thanks!
