Joan and Angel

Let me present to you Joan d' Arc and Angel - two new dolls who didn't let me sleep untill I make them :

Joan was inspired by true historical figure. I had to make a research on medieval armor and costumes in general to be able to create her costume. The costume is decorated with metal and glass beads and chains.

Angel was another challenge, as I have never made wings before. I've got an idea of making wings while I was working on Titania (one of my previews dolls). I am very glad that the new technique worked just perfectly, because I was much against using natural feather because of it's ageing, and because I prefer not to harm animals.

And here is a rare picture of my two Ribbon Jointed Dolls together, as I actually never have a chance to take such pictures, because there is usually no more than one RJD at my home.

The two girls are listed on MY ETSY

hugs to all!

And here we go – my version of Anne is ready! I am absolutely happy with how she came out, and I like her collar. I made her extremely long neck, because I wanted it to show up from the wide collar. I must say also that I am very pleased that she has found new home already. Congratulations Jayne! ;)

Anne Boleyn

I am working right now on Anne, the doll inspired by Anne Bloeyn. Here is my favorite portrait of her...wondering if I will manage to make such an impressive collar...

We all have a clich̩ in our mind when it comes about baroque stile clothes and wigs Рthe ladies must have pale white skin, pink cheeks and a black mole. There is nothing wrong with that image, but I was always curious how the African woman would look like in all those fancy outfits. I have to admit, that I like a lot the way this doll has come out.

Eve is a unique Art Doll made from air-dry clays, painted with acrylic paint. She is wearing a hand made dress from manually dyed and embroidered fabrics. The fabric is very soft and nice to touch.
