Sometimes when I make a doll I'll have a clear idea as to what to name it an and how it should look. But other times the doll just comes together with no plan at all and then refuses to be named at the end of it all.
This mysterious doll is one that I've struggled to name so I decided not to force it. I will just call it the unnamed doll with green eyes.
A tiny 6" tall porcelain ball jointed doll assembled with steel springs.
This is my latest spring assembled bjd and except for custom requests it will be the last doll of this type that I will assemble with springs. I do like the springs, once installed, but installing them in a tiny doll is fiddly to say the least.
This doll also uses the male variant of the Body II molds. So I guess it's a boy! Though to me he's so feminine looking that I think he could just as well be a girl.
Some think just one speck of glitter is too much,
but others think there's never enough.
Next up from the mountain of unfinished work that is slowly being worked through is this tiny unicorn sculpture. If you follow my instagram you might have seen some progress pictures of this one last year. I've named it Sparkle the unicorn for reasons that are probably obvious. There is quite a bit of glitter used on this one.
Sparkle is fantastic and tiny, just 9.5cm tall, and made of polymer clay and other bits. She is not quite like a horse but not quite like a dear and very pleased about it.

Just a quick post to announce another completed Meka doll listed on etsy.
This little one has freckles and olive green eyes and comes with two wigs. One wig is a bright auburn and made from lamb hair and the other is amber yellow suri alpaca.
- Myosotis sylvatica,
- or woodland forget-me-not, is a short-lived perennial that blooms in the spring and has small blue or white flowers.
This little lady is named Forget Me Not and is styled after the tiny blue woodland flowers. It seemed appropriate given that she is the final doll of her kind. At least kind of.
I mentioned in my new years post that I will be retiring some of my dolls this year to make room for new work and so now I’d like to show you my last doll from the “body I” molds, or at least the last one I will be making on my own time. I will continue to keep dolls from this mold available for custom order until the end of the year and then after that the molds will be destroyed.
Forget Me Not has big blue eyes and tiny blue flower tattoos and comes with a dress, headband, and five wigs. Three of her wigs are shown in the pictures but then after I finished with her photo-shoot I found an extra two wigs laying around so there you have it. She gets two extra surprise wigs.
Her dress was a lot of fun to make and is fairly simple but has quite a bit of needlework on the top and some bead embellishments. It is made from cotton with silk for the skirt layers.
To finish the look she also has a simple headband made of flexible silver wire and beads. A tiny flower crown for a fairy queen.

The weather has been unusually warm for Ohio this past week and I've really been enjoying it. I was able to get outside in the garden and do some early spring cleanup and this little doll helped. We're eagerly awaiting planting season and plan to grow lots of veggies and flowers.
More about the doll:
She is one of the porcelain dolls from my mountain of unfinished work, just recently finished, and is available on etsy. She comes with three wigs but doesn't come with any clothes so I imagine she is thankful for the warm weather too.
She is from my Little Minion Doll BII molds with the faun face mold. She's about 6" tall and plays well with 1/12 scale dollhouse furniture and props.
I have two new dolls available on etsy. Except for custom orders these are actually the first new dolls I've finished this year, even though they were started in 2016. My unfinished work has really started to pile up and these two little dolls just feel like the tip of the iceberg.
The first doll has bright blue eyes and a placid expression. Her face is made from the Bunny mold and she is made with the palest porcelain I have. She comes with two wigs. One is long glossy platinum blonde and made from angora mohair. The other wig is made from suri alpaca and is a pastel blue and purple color that reminds me of cotton candy.
The second doll is a cheerful little thing. She has dark indigo and purple eyes and pale pink porcelain and her face is made from the Froggy mold.She also comes with two wigs. One wig is bright blue and the other is a sort of brown sugar or mauve color. They are both made from tibetan lamb hair.
