Every so often I just
have to make some dolls!
This time I have made
some fairy dolls, inspired by the simple carved wooden dolls of the 19th
Fairy Elsa is hand
modelled from Polymer Clay with jointed arms and legs. She has mohair
hair, a handpainted face, bodice, gloves, shoes and stockings. Elsa is very proud of her beautiful upcycled 1940s Art Silk floral patterned skirts, which are held out by her lilac net underskirts.
- Designed, handmodelled and handpainted by Hazel Mathiot
- Polymer Clay
- 1940s Art silk
- Multicoloured 1970s flower lace
- Lilac net
- Faceted pink Quartz bead necklace
- Mohair hair
- Woven floral ribbon
- Organza wings
- 10" (25.4 cm) long
She has been 100% handmade by myself with
loving care and attention to detail.
I hope you like her, I think
she is very charming.
She could be suspended to fly over the top of
your tree*, or be gently posed to sit demurely on a mantlepiece.
I do this with fine nylon fishing wire so it looks as if the fairies
are hovering in mid air
But please remember, fairies are not
just for Christmas!
This is a
collectors item and not suitable for young children.
