About

Up the airy mountain Down the rushy glen, We daren't go a-hunting, For fear of little men.

Many years ago a small shy girl stood at the top of her stairs holding her little sister's hand, believing they could fly they both leaped from the top stair...and flew.
Many years later the feeling of being able to fly with the Fae is still here, although after three children, my body may not have the grace it had all those years ago, my mind can take me into the air to fly with those wondrous beings who share the world with us.
Marriage to a Giant Troll (and then the children) led us to Snowdonia (a natural Troll habitat) where we began to build a place for magic to grow, this became known as Oberon's Wood.
After a while my art began to reflect the surroundings here in the rugged windswept mountains of Wales, more and more Fae began to appear, so naturally I welcomed them in.

I am inspired by simple things, like the colours hiding within a drop of dew, the sky as the sun sets over the distant mountains, the creases on a well-used face.
Everything begins with a sketch, this may become a painting, (which may be found hiding here https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PowderedWigs, if you would like to visit :o) ), it may inform me it would prefer to be born from clay, it may hide within the sketch book and never show its face.
Each creation dictates its own terms, I have little contol over the outcome and I accept this.
Because we live in a remote area, having the internet has become a bridge to the outside world for the Faeries to travel over, if you do meet any along your journey, please send my regards :o)

Sometimes we hide within the trees and just watch, if you sit quietly, the world can be a magical place :o)

Hello my Dearies..thank you for visiting Oberon's Wood.
The work which I create here is based on my philosophy of life...
I prefer to create one-of-a-kind items, or things in very small numbers.
My dolls and figures are totally unique and are never repeated, ever.
My art work is original and any prints are made in limited numbers.
I create scale miniatures and Art Dolls, mostly of a fantasy theme.
I prefer to be spontaneous with my work and not be tied to one type of image or theme, as such there will be different things to see through the wood as I create them...please feel free to walk with me I love company :o)
I do not take custom orders, after being let down by time wasters :o( and will not repeat any doll or figure as they are all sold as OOAK.
This also means that my customers can be sure that they will own the only one :o)

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
*If you wish to use the lay-away plan please contact me before buying and I will work out the deposit and payments and then reserve the item .
The item will remain listed but will be reserved for you :o)*

I offer a lay-away plan for more expensive items £75.00. and over.
This will require a deposit from you, which will then reserve the item (or items) in your name (as initials or nickname if you prefer). The deposit is non-refundable (sorry but it helps prevent time-wasters :o( )
I will only reserve the item for 35 days (unless we have worked out other arrangements) and if no further payments are made within this time the item will be relisted and no longer reserved in your name and you will forfeit your deposit :o(
The further payments will be paid through Paypal invoices which will be sent to your account for whatever amount we have worked out previously together.
I cannot say how much these payments will be here, as most of my items are priced differently and will need to be worked out individually.

All payments made and the amount outstanding will be shown on the item's listing, so that you can see how far you have left before final purchase through Etsy.
I will require your email address for the Paypal invoices but for the invoice requests only, I do not and will not spam you!

If you have any problems or need any more information, please contact me...
I don't bite...much ;o)
Shipping
I will try to post your item within three days of payment but I do live in the countryside so sometimes there may be a slight delay.
(Rural Post Offices have strange opening hours.)

Delivery will be either recorded within the U.K. for all items over £50, or Royal Mail or Parcelforce Worldwide...which offer compensation for loss...but can be horrendously expensive for other countries!
This will obviously take longer to arrive.

I use recorded delivery with insurance because my creations are one-of-a-kind and I could not replace them should anything go astray...this is obviously more expensive...but is much safer.

I do not charge for packing materials or travel costs, just what it actually costs me to ship the item.

Any customs or import charges are the buyer's responsibility and not the seller's (me). These are separate charges which a country imposes on some items and are not part of the item's postal charges. (Your country will get the money not the buyer :o) )

I ship in sturdy cardboard boxes and parcel my creations securely...I also tell them they are going to a new home :o)
Refunds and Exchanges
The boring but necessary bit...
If you are not happy with any purchase please contact me straight away to sort the problem out. It does no one any good to be unhappy!
If you wish to return an item please contact me immediately and return within two weeks of receiving the goods, once the item is returned to me, I will refund your payment minus the postage which I paid to ship to you originally.
I cannot refund postage, sorry, I am just one person trying to get by, I am not a huge company with unlimited funds.
If any item is offered for sale with free shipping, then the amount paid by me to ship the item will be deducted from the refund given when the item is received back here to me. This may be high as I always get full insurance for expensive items and I keep all receipts for postage.

As all of my dolls and artworks are OOAK please ensure that any item is returned in the safest way posible to avoid any problems in transit and I would advise some form of tracking for the parcel.
If an item is shipped to you with insurance and tracking, then it must be returned to me by a similar method.

I hope this sounds fair to everyone.
