This was one of two custom collaborations Jeanette made for me. Her great talent is listening and interpreting what's in a customer's mind's eye, and the finished product ends up being way better than you even envisioned. She is attentive to every single minute detail, and always wraps the final creation in such gorgeous, feminine packaging. For this pirate mermaid, she went out of her way to create a "treasure chest" box. My all-time favorite Etsy shop!

I indulged myself and bought this mermaid because of the color combo and the hairdo! The starfish hair pin and the little pink earrings are some of the exquisite detailing you can expect from any of Jeanette's dolls.

ART DOLLS, DECORATIONS AND CAKE TOPPERS BY ARTIST JEANETTE LEARY
I am not a kid anymore but I still look forward to decorating Easter eggs, trick or treating and watching classic Christmas shows like Rudolf and Frosty. The sound of jingle bells makes my heart skip a beat. I am a sucker for cute things and show great respect for an artfully wrapped gift.
In my free time, I just love using my imagination to create magical things!
I have found that there is no limit to what I can do with a lump of clay! Therefore, I am on a constant quest to make truly unique, fanciful and one of a kind decorations that will help to bring out the inner child with a daily dose of whimsy.
I have a deep love for anything and everything vintage! You will find that many of my creations are vintage inspired.
SANTAS: My one of a kind heirloom Santas are adorned with vintage finds such as old hardware, jewelry, buttons, fabric and more. I love to scour antique and thrift stores, yard sales and online to find the gems that transform them into what I hope to be a "stand out" Christmas collectible and decoration for many years to come.
MERMAIDS: I deck out my retro style mermaids in splashy fun colors and 1950's inspired hairdos! I have such a blast creating these sea queens and have even more fun photographing them in my favorite props, cocktail glasses!
FAIRIES: Many of my little pixies celebrate my love of travel and vintage by sporting vintage postcard wings that depict ethereal images of far away lands. I also love to play around with watercolors and you will see some of my fairies have watercolor wings!
NEW THIS YEAR! ANIMALS, ANIMALS ANIMALS!!!!!
I have always had a freakish love for animals, therefore, I am thrilled to have opened up this new happy door for myself as I combine my love of sculpting with an old world technique that involves spinning cotton over a wire armature which I use to create the bodies of the animals. I am limited only by my imagination and I have plenty of that so please visit often as I will be producing new anthropomorphic figures in the coming year! I particularly love to pair random animals to create an unexpected experience. For example A swimsuited duck and pig play beach ball or a frog and a rabbit go on a date.,,,,,Such fun!
HOLIDAYS ARE A DECORATORS DREAM!
I love to decorate and the holidays give me an excuse to go crazy! I create one of a kind decorations for every holiday including Easter, Halloween and Christmas. I hope my handmade art dolls, ornaments and decorations will evoke a new addiction for holiday decorating in everyone who sees them!
CAKE TOPPERS AND MORE!
I have also begun an exciting new journey of creating Cake toppers! Fun scenes are my specialty such as animals gathered around to celebrate a party or retro style mermaids lounging under a colorful sea. My cake toppers can do double duty as a centerpiece or an heirloom decoration. I invite you to inquire about custom orders!
Thank you so much for visiting my Easy shop! I really hope you visit often as you are always welcome!
