This here is 12 years worth of molds for wax injections of all the Enchanted Doll metal “clothes”, shoes, crowns, and accessories.

I’m gradually losing all the light pink ones to shelf life expiration and in the next couple of years I expect them to turn into a pile of sticky goo.

I’m retiring many of them today, and this is a bittersweet day of mourning and renewal. Can’t hold on to the past; need to keep learning and evolving.

Constructed in 3 parts, cast in Sterling Silver and hinged to fully wrap around the torso. The corset was assembled from wax impressions taken from actual coral branches.

The making of the coral fan crown in Sterling Silver for Sirena via the lost wax casting method. First I made rubber molds of coral branches, then I took wax impressions from those molds and cut and fused together the coral parts into various combinations. Assembled into a fan crown, crossed my fingers, and hoped that it would turn out in metal. And it did!

New costumed porcelain doll available for sale in July. Get in touch with me by email if you’re interested (address in bio). I tried some new things with this doll, one of which was submerging her in salt water for this photoshoot. I got more awesome photos coming from the depths. .

Sirena is wearing a one-of-a-kind sterling silver coral fan crown, sterling silver coral corset, and a sheer silk cape with sterling silver coral clasps. The costume is made from impressions of actual coral.

Netflix and molds. This is the last stage of my new costumed doll that I’ve been working on for the past two months since quarantine began. I’m injecting modular components of her costume for lost wax casting while binge watching Ripper Street. I love problem solving to a backdrop of crime solving (already burned through Murdoch Mysteries TWICE!)

The Favourite has seen many dolls made and sold, but she remains with me. I never realized I had one until I spent 60 days in isolation with mostly dolls for company. That’s a recipe for madness.

A crown for Sirena. I think the news cycle is infecting my creative process. I wanted to freestyle a fun project to distract myself from the Corona virus, and I just realized what I made. Can’t escape from my thoughts.
