Description

I have withdrawn this doll from sale to give her as a gift to my daughter. However I want her to be visible as an example of the type of doll I make as larger scale figurative sculpture. Please visit my blog for news of more bead head dolls in progress.

I am so happy to take commissions for Art dolls including Bead Head Dolls. Your doll might be dressed in fabrics derived from loved ones' clothing or in combinations evocative of your ethnic or cultural origins.

***************************************************

Her eyes gaze into forever as she contemplates the world. A unique rendering of the archetype maiden, this 17.5" tall art doll might be a bride in one culture, in another a mourner. At the right angle she will stare directly into your eyes.

Her giant polymer clay "bead head" with hand painted face details and glass bead eyes is attached to a wire armature making her arms and head slightly posable. Her covered wire fingers may also be gently repositioned. Her layered garments are of muslin and reclaimed antique laces embellished with sequins, buttons both vintage and new, and beads of glass, wood, ceramic and brass. Reclaimed vintage jewelry make her wood and metal hanging charms, and while her shell and leather belt pouch are found objects. Her luxurious hair is a combination of acrylic and cotton yarns and string, styled with a small braid in back.

The White Maiden is presented with a simple stand made from found driftwood and wooden dowel. However she should be displayed in an environment free from strong sunlight and kept protected from moisture.

All commissioned dolls come with a custom stand. They may be removable or permanently attached as desired.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I prefer Paypal, although I do accept cards per the Etsy policies. I require payment prior to shipping. CA residents will have 8.75% sales tax added to orders.

Returns & exchanges

I want you to love your doll. If you receive a doll and you don't like her after all, you may return her to me WITHIN 14 DAYS of receipt, in unused condition, at your expense. I will refund the doll's price via the payment method, less shipping. No-one has sent me back a doll yet.

The same policies apply to crocheted items and any of the other textile art items that appear in my store from time to time.

Exceptions:

Items ON SALE, are considered final sales.

Tags and Cards are sold AS-IS. Honestly it's just not worth the bank fees to do refunds on the inexpensive paper crafted items. (No-one has ever wanted to send back cards or tags either.)

Damages.....

In the event of a loss by the post office, or packages damaged in transit, we can work together to track down the package. If USPS tracks the item as delivered, I am going to consider it as received by the buyer. If USPS has lost it, I will refund the price or create a similar replacement doll (it won't be exactly the same because they are all one of a kind) or similar Card.

If the doll has been damaged in transit, you must make an official complaint to USPS, and I will do the same. I will refund or replace it, once you have shipped her back to me WITHIN 14 DAYS of delivery. Please photograph the damaged box as part of the complaint to USPS.

Shipping policies

In general I ship USPS Priority Mail and Priority Mail International. I ship cards and tags USPS First Class Mail. I ship purchases next business day. I don't usually do signature confirmation for regular dolls, because not everyone is home to receive packages. For Bead Head dolls (over $100) I insure.
International mailing is listed as "Merchandise". Any duties are the buyer's responsibility.

Additional policies

Special Policies for Commissions.....

If you contact me for a commission, we can discuss terms depending on the size of the project. In general I would need a 50% non-refundable* deposit up front, with balance due on completion prior to shipping.

*In the event that you change your mind about the order before I have made the piece I will refund your deposit. However if I have begun or finished the piece, I can either hold the doll for you if requested, or I will place the finished doll for sale. If I am able to recoup the full cost within ONE YEAR, I will then be happy to refund your deposit.

If you do not like the finished commission, an extremely unlikely event, you may return her to me in unused condition WITHIN 14 DAYS. I will refund 50% (not including shipping) and proceed as above, placing the doll for sale.

No-one has changed their mind about a commissioned doll yet.

Doll Hospital...

My dolls are not for play, but decorative use by adult collectors. Sometimes over time even carefully considered cloth dolls can get damaged. I will undertake repairs on older damaged dolls from my store for 20% of the original purchase price, plus shipping.

New clothes for your doll? That's a commission. Let's talk.
