Simply adorable nesting doll set that is perfect for a little boy (hard to find!). The seller was so pleasant to communicate with and really worked with me to ship to the US from the UK. Packaged nicely and shipped immediately!!! Thank you so much!

We're running out of paint again!

Our creative venture began as a simple and affordable way to provide thoughtful and personal gifts for our extensive family at Christmas 2011. We had such a positive response from everyone who received one of our Russian Doll Miniatures that we continued to paint them after Christmas, simply because we enjoyed it so much. We set up a Facebook page so that our friends and family could see everything we made, and the reaction to that was also incredibley positive. So we bit the bullet and decided to set up a shop so that everyone else might be able to see what we can do. We've seen lots of Russian Dolls around as they seem to have come back into fashion in a big way, but we've not seen anything quite like the ones we make. As each doll is individually hand painted by one or the other of us, they are 100% unique so we feel confident that there will only ever be one of each of them in the world. Even the ones we try to repeat are slightly different to the originals, so they really are one in a million. Most of all though, they are made with love and care. We so enjoy making each one, and totally love having them on our shelves at the moment. Once varnished, with all their colours popping, we feel so utterly thrilled to be able to create them.

Welcome to the Healy Designs Russian Dolls shop, thanks for stopping by.

We began these creations as Christmas gifts for our extensive family and it has since become something we just can't stop doing. Our kitchen table is never empty of doll blanks, paints and jars of water in various colours. We love the process that goes with creating each individual doll, whether it is a miniature figure or a full set of nesting dolls and have had so much wonderful feedback that we are inspired to just make more and more. Hopefully you'll see something that you like, and if you don't but still like the idea then please feel free to contact us as we are able to make them to order as well as listing what stock we have.
Happy browsing and enjoy your day.
