One of the most exciting things about creating my art dolls is seeing how far
around the world they travel. From Australia to Austria and the Netherlands to New
Zealand, the dolls might just be among the most well-travelled ones around today!
As you will see, these dolls can be used in numerous ways, too. My
customers are nothing short of inspiring and come up with great ideas for using
Weddings around the world
I have been honoured to make dolls for couples who have been married in other
countries. I have delivered to numerous European countries, Asian countries, and
even the Far East.
I love creating wedding dolls, especially ones for ethnic weddings. The clothing can
be far more detailed than other styles, providing an enjoyable challenge for me.
The embroidery used in these dolls often includes golden threads that make the
finished result really sparkle.
Some people order their dolls to wear the exact outfits they will get married in.
Others place their order to include more casual dress. What would you choose?
Art doll wedding cake toppers
Can you see yourself standing on top of a cake with your beloved? Not the real you,
of course, but the art doll version of you. Many couples have decided to give their
wedding cake some extra ‘pop’ by ordering custom doll wedding toppers. These are
designed to include bamboo sticks inserted underneath the shoes. Each doll can
then be safely positioned on top of the cake and will not move. If you’re looking for
a wedding centrepiece, this could be just the thing!
Unusual wedding gifts
Have you ever struggled to know what to buy someone as a wedding gift? It is
certainly hard if they already live together and they do not want for anything. Many
wedding guests have opted to get a pair of custom wedding dolls made for the
occasion. They can either be made after the wedding, once you know what the
happy couple wore, or beforehand, if you go for a casual outfit for each.
Either way, these dolls make for a wedding gift that will be long treasured by the
Safely sent to their destinations
Once complete, every art doll is prepared for its journey, no matter which corner of
the globe it is travelling to. Each one is carefully snuggled inside some tissue paper,
beautifully wrapped, and settled inside a strong Kraft box.
It’s always nice to receive photos of the dolls with their happy owners once they
have safely arrived.
My world map of destinations now has pins in it from many
countries. Not all have been designed for weddings, but those that were made for a
special occasion such as this are especially nice to note on my map. (Can you guess
I love weddings?)
