Etsy Shop Update

Happy Holidays All!

I’ve added some fantastic new items to my Etsy shop, including some of my dolls from my numbered, named collection.

Below are a few examples of the new work. To see more of each item, including close up pics, visit my Etsy shop!










A Primitive Mermaid in Shades of Lavender & Grey


Meet lovely Marilla. She’s a little over 13 inches from head to tail. She’s been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She’s been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom, a couple of times, giving her such a lovely, aged patina. Marilla has been sealed with matte sealer so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She has an embroidery thread loop sewn to her back making her suitable for hanging.

Marilla’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown painted gloves.

Marilla’s tail has been painted in lovely, muted shades of lavender & grey. 


Marilla’s hair is 100% honey blonde mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting. It has been ‘parted’ & pulled loosely to the sides.

Marilla is available on eBay. She will end, Sunday, June 14th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to have this little girl swim your way!

A Primitive Sea Maiden in shades of Blue & Green

MirandaHeadToToe This special little girl is Miranda. Miranda is my original design, inspired by my recent vacation to the beach & all the ‘mermaid money’ we found! She measures 15″ from head to tail. She’s been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many times. Miranda has a rich, deeply-aged patina, reminiscent of antique dolls. She has a hemp loop attached to her back making her suitable for hanging.

Miranda’s face has been needle-sculpted by hand and hand-painted. Her bottom lip ‘pouts’ while her top lip is simply painted. She has been painted with various mediums & has been sealed top to bottom with a combination of sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display.

Miranda has needle-sculpted fingers. She has delicate pink fingernails. She is highly detailed & even features knuckles & a tiny belly button.

Miranda’s tail is painted in varying hues of blue & green with highlights added to give the illusion of sparkling scales.

Miranda is carrying seven sand dollars which range in size from 1-2 inches. They’ve been made of muslin, stuffed & hand-painted & sanded several times. Each piece of ‘mermaid money’ has been strung to a piece of hemp twine & loosely tied to Miranda’s arm.

Her hair is brown 100% mohair. I have lightly glued, then carefully needle-felted it to her head. It is parted & hangs loosely upon her chest. Extra care has been taken (and must be taken) while handling this long mohair as it is fragile & separates easily. Minimum handling is recommended.

Miranda (named after my little cousin who had curly long brown hair just like this) will be available on eBay July 20th at 9PM EST. She will end July 27th at 9PM EST. If you’d like to look at this little girl or even, perhaps, have her swim to your house, click here.
