Thank you Elizabeth. My Jack Sparrow marionette is just brilliant!! Your service from inception of the idea through to completion and delivery was excellent. Without reservation I recommend Shuswap Strings to anyone interested in puppetry and the enjoyment of this very old, historical form of interactive entertainment. Please note that the photo shown is a stock photo. My custom marionette looks exactly like Jack Sparrow.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I can make you a marionette or painting of nearly any subject - humans, animals, characters, you name it. Clothing is required on marionettes to cover arm and leg hardware. I can also make tiny custom accessories to go with your puppet. Shoot me a message to learn more.
Marionettes are made of Sculpey clay and are designed as fine art objects. Treat them nicely and they'll last forever. Not intended for children without adult supervision. Puppets may break if handled roughly.
Each marionette is made by me by hand. I am not currently set up for wholesale, but hope to be in the future. Please message me if you are interested in a wholesale arrangement
Marionette sizing differs by listing. Please message me if you would like a puppet outside those measurements
