Cornish Pixie Elves and Art Dolls made in Cornwall, United Kingdom
Neil Dawkins on Jul 19, 2016
Bought this as a last minute add-on present for my wife's birthday. I included a note hoping it would arrive sooner than stated delivery time... and it did! Not only that but it was beautifully gift wrapped and came with a small card wishing my wife a happy birthday. She loves the charm and has it on her keyring.
I'm Victoria or Vic for short and from an early age I have loved making things. When I left school I trained as a Florist and also worked for the high street jewellers, Ratners. From both of those jobs I learnt skills that I still use today in my creations.
I moved to Cornwall from Dorset after meeting my husband while I was visiting my sister who had moved to Cornwall a few months earlier. When my two children were little I turned to creating again and in 2009 I started Cornish Dragon. Now my children are more grown up I have a lot more time to create. I make lots of different things, more recently I'm working more with fabric to make" One of a Kind" Cloth Art Dolls, so the Jewellery and melting glass to make lampwork beads has taken a backseat for now.
Cornwall is a huge source of inspiration to my work, its myths magic and legends plus its beautiful countryside and of course the rugged coast. I like to think that by buying a piece of my work I'm bringing you a bit of Cornish Magic.
