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.
I finished this one. This was an order so she is not available in my Etsy Shop. I have a few more orders to do as well before I will have any in my shop available. I may be able to sneak in a holiday fairy. I am trying to fit that in as well. So busy this time of year. I have lots of ideas for fairies that I hope to get some time to work on.
She has a little wand. I love these little wands for them. They are swarovski crystals.
Three days of labor and love on this little girl. Oh my, I just love her. Usually I don’t have hard time parting with my dolls but she will certainly tug at my heart. This was a custom order doll and will not be listed in my Etsy Shop. She was sold privately. Her name is little Izzy.
Her colors are lavender and I painted a beautiful wooden box for her to sit her on. And that wand! Not all my fairies get wands. Ones with lots magic and big loving tasks get wands. I see more fairies though with wands coming. I just love the magic they add!
This little one I just finished. It is a custom order. She is listed in my Etsy Shop but already sold for a customer.
She’s such a cutie. After I did Jewel, this customer wanted one similar cuz Jewel was so cute. So this one came to life as Jewels little sister 🙂 Because I did these two dolls one after another I could almost get the same look, but usually its virtually impossible to get the same face on each of my dolls because they are all handmade and OOAK.
This was a custom order for a customer. She is a “Butterfly” Themed Fairy. Lots detail in this one. Real fun to do. I love the butterfly theme. So pretty. I will link to my Etsy shop the listing, however, she has sold.
I have just completed this little one. I think she found a home already though. I just listed her in my Etsy shop.. Love this one.. I named her Jewel …. she just sparkles like a jewel…. this one is soooo adorable. Love her colors. Everyone loves pink on these little babies.
I have a little baby fairy listed in my Etsy Shop. Oh my, she’s like a little shining star to me. So I named her Star. She is approximately 3″. Click HERE to see her Etsy Listing. Don’t miss this one! She’s a cutie. So soft and delicate.
