charsdolls' Shop Announcement

My dolls are made by request only unless stated otherwise. I can create similar dolls to the ones you see here, but no doll will be an exact duplicate as they are a one of a kind art doll. Please contact me via Etsy Conversations with your request for similar doll.

I have always loved and played with dolls, as well as creating dolls my own imagination since I was a little girl. I have enjoyed sharing and creating dolls for people from coast to coast and around the world.
I started my doll creating journey making rag dolls and now I create one-of-a-kind Art Dolls.
I love working with fabrics such as Batiks, Silks, Quality Cottons, just to name a few of my preferred fabrics. Once I design the body, which is my canvas, I start to embellish, and create a theme for the doll as my imagination takes over. I am always thrilled as I build my doll and I spend a great of time creating my Art Dolls. The dolls I create are very detailed and a creation of love with each doll. It can be hard to give a doll to a new home from time to time. I suppose that is why I have so many of my dolls in my own collection.
I use glass, ribbons, glass beads, pearls, lace,
swarovski crystals, tibetan lambs wool for hair, fun fur yarns, prismacolor pens and pencils, pigment pens, just to name a few of the many embellishments I use to create my dolls.

I have a website of my Art Dolls:
My website is named for my mother, Josephine, who I loss in 2009 to heart disease and diabetes. She was also the person that taught me to sew and to appreciate the art of creating things that are handmade, her Kentucky upbringing I think. I named my website in her honor long before she passed away and she always loved to see my dolls and the art I created. She was my BIGGEST FAN and I miss her so.

I also have a shop of my Fairy Wings and Whimsical things that I create:

I also love working with glass, lampworking and glass fusing:

My ART DOLLS are pieces of art and not intended for heavy handling or play. They are not suitable for children.
