Nina Angelina …

Little Nina Angelina  is a One-of-A-kind art doll and entirely made by hand. No moulds were used in her creation  and none made of the original afterwards. She comes with her swing, a Photo Certificate of Authenticity and her very own story  book with her story in it … Nina was sold before i even finished writing her story, and she is off to live with a very lovely lady who is hoping to travel the world with her …

DSCF5124 DSCF5082 birdie3

Nina’s swing was made from wire, and decorated with beads, thread, ribbon, flowers and a little key hanging from a chain. It has a ring at the top, so it can be hung, and a heart shaped seat for Nina to perch upon, with a ribbon to hold her safely in place …

On one hand Nina is holding a little friend, a clay and wire bird, hand painted with a wire beak, her other hand can be attatched to the arm of the swing with a ribbon around her wrist.

 

Nina’s head was sculpted from clay and painted with acrylic paint before being sealed with a matt varnish for protection.Her hair is made with wool and decorated with a wire headpiece decorated with beads and flowers.

Her body was also sculpted from clay over wire, and her limbs from wood and clay with bead and ribbon joints to enable movement. All her clothes are also hand-made and hand stitched by me. She wears white lace stockings with bead decoration and a lilac voile  dress, with a long ruff trail, also decorated with lots of hand sewn beads and ribbons. Her arms have more voiles and ribbons and bead details on them, and she is wearing a pair of ballet pumps on her feet.
