To Live means to Create

What first started as a childs dream to become Mangaka and illustrator has become a professional art buissness focused on high detailed miniature sculptures, jewelry and costumery.
After 12 years of training all trades of dawing and painting I discovered a equal deep rooting love: Sculpting with polymerclay!
I´ve been working for nearly 5 years with clay and mixed media, gaining expertise in miniatures, dollmaking, featherpainting, crafting and design.

All the training and sometimes obsession with my work led to this point where I can live from selling my creations, to be an artist as fulltime job.

I show my love for nature, fantasy, different games, movies and fandoms with sculpting and crafting - Its this glorious certain feeling to bring the fictional into reality which lets me create.
You´ll find spiritual pieces inspired by nature and fantasy, as well as minitiously crafted fanart. Every piece is made with love, thats a promise! :)

Above this I love it to share my abilitys with others, using my skills to fullfill dreams and little wishes. If you have questions or you need help I gladly help with all I know!

Frequently asked questions
Spezialanfertigungen und personalisierte Bestellungen

- Do you take custom requests and how do I get in contact?

Yes I do! I offer to personalize most all items in my shop, as well as you can make a request for a completely custom item.
I also offer to recreate already sold pieces on agreement.

If you want to make a custom request simply send me a message here on Etsy.
Please keep two important things in mind:
1. I am completely alone with all things to solve: material, stock, design, crafting, painting, packaging, photos and customer contact.
Currently I´not able to answer all messages and I can not solve all request, so yours may be declined or even unanswered - I´m sorry!

2. Know what you want. At best have a clear wish to design in mind, pictures and sketches are best!

Geschenkverpackung und Verpackung

How do you pack the items?

I try to arrange every package as beautifull as possible :) Pieces which are small enough will be send in a giftbox and a organza bag, bigger pieces will be safely wrapped in bubblefoil and decorated with paper leaves.
I want your purchase to be a great experience - Every item get shipped in a cardboard box for most safe delivery, not in an envelope or plastic bag.

If an item is very fragile I´ll choose safety over beauty - so it will be packed as safe as possible with the drawback of not so fancy decoration.

You want a special giftwrapping? A personal message included on a card? No problem! Send me a message along with your purchase so we can arrange everything :)

Pflegeanweisungen

How do I treat my new piece of art?

Polymerclay Jewelry:
-My polymerclay jewelry is usually NOT varnished and not fully waterproof.
-The Citadel-Colors I use for painting are not resistent to soap, cleaners, saltwater or chlored water!
-Bright colored clay can grow darker and get dark spots when exposed often to water!
- Do not wear it over night! It can be dangerous for you and your jewelry.

Puppets/Dolls:
-Do not wash! If needed only carefully handwash the stained area.
-Do not expose to high temperatures - I use hotglue which may melt.
-Do not give to children!

Feathersquills:
-Only dryclean it with a toothbrush.
-Clean the nib everytime after writing with warm water.

How long does it take to get my purchased item?

Two main points make up the delivery & shipping time:
1. Items marked as "made to order" will take time to craft, paint, make photos and then to pepare them for shipping.
This can take a 1 week up to 2 months.

2. International shipping can take alot of time - especially the toll process!
Please check the estimated shipping times and your tracking number regulary - If you need help with tracking just contact me!

So: I need an estimate time for crafting/preparing for shipping (1-8weeks, depending on the product)
after the item is finished I´ll prepare it for shipping within 24hours.
Then the DHL/USPS/ international postal services will deliver it to you, which can take up to 6 weeks, depending on the destination.
