Back to work on dolls as of today! Gotta finish my ongoing project Theodora Rex, which is near completion, and then move on to finish another doll I’d been working on for a few months. Given the stage she’s at, I think it is now safe for me to disclose her name: Madame Pomapadour.

    Marina I feel a though I am about to burst with excitement!!!! MADAM POMAPADOUR!!! Now this was worth the wait!! Be still my beating heart be still. I can not wait to see what your vision of this historical beauty might be. Is that a helmet for this lovely lady?

    • Marina says:

      No, Anthony, the helmet was for something else. I plate stuff in batches so as to be efficient. I’m keeping Madame Pompadour’s accessories a secret for now.

        I love that she is Madame Pompadour! Intelligent, refined, beautiful and so influential! The heart of the king in her hands and a sense of style still defines French decor today. Loving all things French and having just returned from Paris a few short weeks back, this doll is going to break my heart, I just know it!!

    I didn’t know you did the plating by yourself too, you are really a multifunctional artist, Marina you are so inspiring, I hope to meet you one day, please never change.

    Happy to see you back. Wow Madame Pomapadour this should be to my liking…. -/

  4. Welcome back! Beautiful photographs of you working, always a pleasure to get these glimpses <3

    Welcome back ! Gorgeous helmet love to have one!

  6. Anthony says:

    I thought a helmet for a French aristocrat seemed a little off, but after all of these years of following your work Marina I’ve learned to sometimes expect the unexpected. I can not wait to see Madame Pomapadour’s mysterious yet no doubt astoundingly beautiful accessories, and of course the doll herself <3

    Jeanne Poisson… Can’t wait to see what attire you chose for her.

    Hi! I can’t wait to see the new doll! It’s always such a treat to see your new creations :-).

  9. Sonia Anne says:

    You are working on the beautiful and refined Madame Pomapadour. How wonderful! Can’t wait to see her finished!

  10. Crystal says:

    Oh good, your back! It just did not seem the same around here! So excited to see more new dolls! I don’t know who Madame Pompadour is, but you can bet I’ll google her. I know there is a “pompadour red”, wonder if it has anything to do with her.

  11. Sonia Anne says:

    I must have seen the same description as Jayne, when I did some research on Madame Pompadour! Beautiful and refined!

  12. sarah says:

    Oh I can’t wait to see what Madame Pompadour looks like! I’m sure she will be stunning, how exciting!

    You are definitely an inspiration Marina, admiring your beautiful little jewelry pieces for your dolls has inspired me to take some jewelry classes :D

    Marina, hello! I didn’t receive my book yet :(( I’m so worried it could get lost :(
