Announcement   Welcome to Hawthorn Meadow! Fairies, sprites, mermaids, and elves live in this beautiful world.

Queen Glimmer, the fairy queen and her father, King Thorne rule this little kingdom from the heights of the great Hawthorn tree. No one remembers how long the tree has stood in the center of the Meadow or how many generations of queens have lived there. Guarding the portal between the fairy and mortal worlds at the base of the tree is Wispa, the Gatekeeper. Pearle, Glimmers mother was transformed by an evil sorceress into a mermaid and now lives in Mermaid Bay. My collectible character dolls are lovingly handmade to bring the inhabitants of the Fairy Ring, Mushroom Forest, Shimmering Pond, and the rest of Hawthorn Meadow to life.

The dolls have polymer clay faces and soft sculpture bodies. They are 18" long and in a sitting position unless otherwise stated. Everything on this site is handmade by me and are in general one of a kind.

In the fall, I make witch dolls. They reflect all the fazes of womanhood from teen to hag. Some are funny, some have attitude and all are dressed superbly be they Country Witches or City Witches

Custom sewn fairy costumes allow the fairy princess in your life to play along with us All fabrics are prewashed so there will be no irritants to tender skin and mom can machine wash and dry them repeatedly. These costumes are meant to play in.I don't use scratchy fabrics but I recommend wearing a tee shirt under them,though nearly all vests, dresses and bodices are lined for comfort and to prolong the life of the garment. Your fairy "wannabe" can also wear the pieces with things in her wardrobe like jeans and skirts, even over her dresses.

Perfect for art and fairy doll collectors or for anyone who enjoys losing themselves in wonder, the Hawthorn Meadow Etsy shop is your portal to the fairy realm. Welcome!

About

Welcome to Hawthorn Meadow where the fairies live!

I've always loved to sew and unleash my creative side through craft. On a trip with some girlfriends to Florida, I noticed that pirates were in vogue. When I came home, I decided to try making a pirate fairy doll, and, while I was doing this, I found myself asking, “What would turn a fairy to piracy?”

I realized I was telling myself a story, so I wrote it down. I created a world where the pirate fairy lived, and that world had to be inhabited by more than just pirate fairies!

That's how Hawthorn Meadow came to be. I created Queen Glimmer, who presides over the fairy realm from atop the Hawthorn tree. Her subjects grew to include not just fairies, but mermaids, elves, and sprites, and they all lived together harmoniously in my magical world.

NOTE: The main character dolls pictures shown on the site are the original prototypes. When you order one, keep in mind that they are handmade one at a time , so the faces will be similar, but I haven't got the knack of making faces exactly alike. Also, while the styles and colors will be as pictured, sometimes fabrics are discontinued or dye lots are different.
My imagination unleashed, I started making fairy costumes. They are made of prewashed, apparel grade fabrics to stand up to wear and laundering and even pass down to younger members of the family. The vests and petal skirts can also be worn with everyday clothes! I am now working on publishing the stories about my fairy dolls with puppets of the main characters. As soon as that project is completed, it will be announced here.

It's a good thing I love what I do, because I work on the dolls and costumes constantly. Each doll is lovingly handmade, dressed in high-quality fabrics and adorned with retro jewelry and accesories made from clay and crystal baubles. I make their faces from polymer clay and their 18" bodies are soft sculpture. Most are in a sitting position to adorn a mantle, bookshelf or back of a chair.

Thank you for visiting my shop and staying to read my story! I know you'll love your Hawthorn Meadow fairy as much as I do.
