Finally the project I have been working on since spring 2018 is finished!
Two commissioned porcelain ball jointed dolls with portrait likeness for a customer in France.
They arrived safely to their new home and met their owner. I was very nervous, as I always am , if I answered the expectations of the customer.
But I had no reasons to be worried. My dear customer was overwhelmed and truly pleased with the result!
…I opened the box, and saw the dolls…
I think I repeat me, but once again, how beautiful, spruce, elegant they are..
You’ve got in your hands a real and pure talent. I thank you so much for your patient work.
I’m very happy of our collaboration, and I was very lucky to find you.
I was thinking of the dolls for my wife for several years, and never found someone who could help me. Then I saw your dolls!..
You are an amazing artist and a wonderful person!….
Such words make an artist in me fly! It is truly satisfying after months of work to achieve the result that makes other people sooo happy!
I wish everybody a wonderful week 🙂
LISA is not a new girl. I made her in 2016 and she brought me a special prize of Max-Oscar-Arnold Art Award in Modern Doll Art by city of Coburg in Germany.
I decided to give her a new outfit and a new wig, and this is exactly the case when a new hair color changes the girl for the better, in my opinion.
With her new dark brown curly hair, her green eyes began to shine even brighter. She became more… Parisian sort of girl, I think 🙂
The new outfit I gave her is made of my favorite wild silk. The tutu-rock is made of dozens of real silk flower petals colored and shaped in the form using millinery instruments by me.
Her hair band is a very special mini version of the silk flower deco band of the real-human-size, made also by me.
I think all these changes made LISA shine brighter and made her like a little rose flower, tender, but knowing her beauty!
Shortly before Exhibition in Moscow in March, I was able to finish a new porcelain bjd doll. I called her Belle.
Her body is like a warm caramel. Super silky to the touch.
The clothes are made from real wild silk and decorated with silk mini flowers made by me using the millinery technique for flowers of “human-size”.
The doll has two wigs: one is long blond straight style made of Goat Hair and super soft.
The other wig is made of Mohair hair and is curly.
Belle is on eBay
and in my Etsy Shop “Reeshdolldesign ”
Thank you for your interest:)
Shortly before my dear Alice found a new home in France, I was able to make some photo shooting of her inspired by her magical adventures in Wonderland.
It was really fun to create all the requisite for the photos: making the paper flowers for the enchanted garden scene; creating a Rabbit house, where Alice was so unexpectedly enlarged, or finding all the funny bottles, and pretty porcelain cups…
I wish I had more time to play with the girl and her friend White Rabbit.. but this is as it is.. when the doll finds her new home, you have to let her go with the light heart, no matter how “in love” you are at the moment with your latest creation 🙂
I have finished a new doll specially for the doll exhibition in Prague. It is Alice in Wonderland and her friend Little White Rabbit.
The little White Rabbit was made using the pattern and a wonderful tutorial by Anna Palto.
Thank you for your interest!
My beautiful porcelain BJD LILY was adopted by the same collector who bought my first doll Maria. So, as a gesture of my appreciation, I’ve decided to make a dress for my little LILY 🙂
A friend of my, a stylist, told me, that she sees Lily only in yellow 😉 So… here she is – My LILY in a fairy-like yellow creation!
I hope my LILY will be loved in her new home. And I am happy that she will be in a company of my dear Maria Doll 🙂
I finely finished the outfit for my little girl Nina, just before the LDoll Festival 2016 in Lyon, France.
I am happy with the result 🙂 She turned out very ‘frenchy’, so to say 😉
I really hope she will find a loving home, though, as usual, I love her, as all my girls, so much..
Today is the International Women’s Day! As I come from Russia, it is a Big Day for all Russian girls, women, mamas and grandmothers 🙂 All boys, men, boyfriends, husbands and grandfathers are trying especially hard on that day to please us 🙂
It is kind of celebrating the women,but also the spring, the end of winter and awaiting of all nice things the warm weather brings us.
Today, the nature met me with this picture:
BUT… after couple of hours the nature remembered obviously that it IS actually a spring day and brought us this…!
So, I wish everybody a happy spring day and lots of happy moments on this day for us – GIRLS of all ages!
Meanwhile, I’ll go back to work on my happy moment of the day-China painting of my two new dolls 🙂
