If you go quietly through the woods you may stumble across a sight like this! This sculpture inspired my dear friend George Hill, the Poet to write this beautiful poem:

Go Quietly.

As I walked through the woods today
scattering autumn leaves around
I blessed the gentle wind that blew
bringing more leaves to the ground.

Then suddenly I saw a fairy
her gaze transfixed ahead
I looked to see that she had seen
a hedgehog just out of bed.

I saw a pair of beady eyes
above a pointed snout
It was Harry, a baby hedgehog
out of hiding and peering about

So walk quietly in the woods my friend
and maybe, - you never know,
perhaps you too will bear witness
to this autumnal wondershow.

George A. Hill December 2017

The little fairy has a scrim dress and wings and beaded head piece and at full height stands at approx. 26cm high. she can be made to order so if you would like a particular colour scheme, please feel free to ask.

Within my sculptures I endeavour to capture an emotional response through movement and dynamics. These are bespoke, quirky mixed media sculptures all using wire, foil and fabric dipped into a weatherproof textile hardener called Paverpol. Each unique piece is individually made; as they evolve they form a spirit of their own. This keeps the joy of making them alive and exciting.

I am happy to post to most countries; if your country is not listed below, just let me know and I will find out the postage costs for you.

My sculptures make great gifts for those special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, births, Christenings. I welcome commissions and if you would like to see examples of some of my previous work please visit my website at www.stephaniejacobs.co.uk.
Thankyou!

I adore my sculpture which exceeded my expectations❤️Stephanie could not have been more helpful throughout the whole process. I asked for a couple of changes to the original sculpture, 2 girls and 1 boy 💜💙💜 and also asked for the hair to be changed on the “Mum”. The piece now depicts a time in my life as a young mum with my 3 wee ones. Just perfect ❤️

This is my second purchase from Stephanie and it’s absolutely amazing. The delicacy of the kite is beautiful. The sculpture was packed well enough to make it from the UK to USA with no damage. I especially appreciate Stephanie’s great communication. It’s easy to describe what you want and she makes it exactly how I envisioned it. I’ve already placed a 3rd order because I love her work so much.

Words literally cannot express how beautiful this fairy is - she literally sums us Penny for Your Thoughts beautifully - serene and calm. I've bought her for a Christmas present and cannot wait for her to be opened. So, so beautiful :-)

I love my girl with a kite. She’s beautiful and one of the most original pieces of art I own :) I asked Stephanie to make a girl especially for me as I wanted some changes. She was very helpful and created for me a perfect girl :) She respected all of my wishes so my girl with kite is stunning. It’s such a pleasure to look ar her. I was surprised how fast and safe my order arrived as well. Thank you Stephanie !!!
