Announcement   My high end dolls (Ludo, Falkor, etc.) take many hours to create and are meticulously crafted from start to finish of high quality materials.

Each creation is a one of a kind original design using my own methods and imagination. I do not work from patterns or kits.
Each one takes anywhere from 8-100 hours to create.

~Made with love in magical New Zealand~

Due to an increase in price at NZ Post I have to raise my shipping prices. I try to absorb cost when I can but the increase in both shipping and packaging have really made this difficult. I apologize for the inconvenience.

***Custom orders are always welcome! I can make just about anything.

This wee beastie is an awesome creation by Fairyspit. Not only is it absolutely adorable, but it is exceedingly well made. The eyes actually look real! The limbs also MOVE! Adorable hands and feet and little mousey hat! I highly recommend Fairyspit for any selection you might make!

Silk fur is rooted over his entire body. This is extremely time and labour intensive. It will most likely be a few days before this is complete. Falkor is available for adoption.

About halfway done sewing in hundreds of glass bead "scales". Once this is done, his entire body will be covered in silk "fur" that is rooted millimeter by millimeter. He is still available so claim him now :)

About

A little bit of magic...

I have been creating art my whole life, needle felting since 2008. Bringing things to life that are in your head, a memory, your dreams is a gift and I love being able to do it in a medium that is full of warmth and life.

Doll making is a very fluid process - I start with an idea and it does not always end where the idea began. I love that process. The wool, clay, or whatever medium sort of tells you what it wants to become.

Wee Beasties have been my favourite project to date. The monsters under your bed and in the walls are lovely wee things that just want to make you smile and I love being able to show that.

    I have been an artist all of my life from the time I could pick up a crayon. Fantasy is reality to me, it helps us escape to a place full of magic and innocence. It is very satisfying to bring things to life you once could only see in dreams.

I am a self taught artist living in New Zealand. I work in a variety of mediums and work on perfecting my craft constantly...I am always learning and trying new things.

A note about needle felted items: needle felting is a labour intensive process of creating soft sculptures out of fibers with a single needle.
Each work can take from 8-100 hours to create and is priced accordingly.

For a country not listed, please contact me for shipping rate. Once your item is posted, it will be at the mercy of the postal services from NZ and in between and there are no guarantees. I have never had an item not make it to its intended customer, but please know that without tracking there is a risk. As always, I will keep the shipping receipt until positive feedback is received and know that the item has reached its intended destination.

If you require more information about an item prior to purchasing (description or more photos), do not hesitate to convo me and I will be happy to give you any information needed to help in your decision to purchase.

Additional policies and FAQs
I take custom orders and am happy to work with you to make your ideal item. Feel free to start an Alchemy request or convo me for more information. I have several custom listings in the shop. If they do not meet your requirements, please contact me and I can create a new listing for you.

FAQ:

Pricing- The prices for my pieces are moderate for this type of work. I put a lot of consideration into how I set prices. This includes time spent on the item, cost of materials, complexity of design and other factors.

Needle felting is a labour intensive art when done properly and I spend anywhere between 8-100 hours depending on the piece. Many of my felts are mixed media and contain several components (all handmade by me).

The items may be small in size but are made meticulously and I take pride in my craftsmanship. My work is a representation of me as an artist and I only sell items of high quality. All of my customers have been thrilled with their pieces and I would love to add you to a long line of satisfied customers.
