At Years End ~ Seasons Fairies for 2013

For the past two weeks I have been working almost non-stop on these four ladies, my Seasons Fairies for 2013. I finished them only two hours ago and I feel like I am about to fall off my chair..! 

From left to right. Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer.
all are about 12" tall

At Years End ~ Seashore Troll

A commission piece I made for one of my collectors. She was such a delight to create!

At Years End ~ A Christmas Angel for Barwon Park

The Christmas Angel Tree Topper I made for Barwon Park Mansion our local National Trust property.

The old Christmas tree was falling to pieces (literally) held together with bits of tinsel. In December last year I offered to make a OOAK Angel for the Park if they got a new Christmas tree, after a bit of a slow start the money was raised and the new tree purchased! 

...and now this lovely lady sits on top of the Mansions brand new 8ft Christmas tree in the entry hall. 

At Years End ~ The Underlyns

Yes they are both finally finished, eyelashes, finishing touches and they even have names!

At Years End ~ The Wing Walker.

Ok.... to say its been quite busy at Nightswood for the past two months is an understatement.... and the past two weeks have been a mad rush to the end!

The Wing Walker.
This is a commission piece I made back in October, a Christmas gift and a companion piece to The Ways of the Shaman that I made last year.

The Night Guardian & Higgdale

The Night Guardian. 15'' tall. 
Will be starting work on her sister The Day Guardian in the next few days!

Higgdale. 12'' tall.
I Love this little guy and his Sweet Peas!

Underlyn Wings WIP

Something a little different, I have been playing with the idea for their wings for quite some time now. My Underlyns are not like my other Fairys and I didn't want to give then the same type of wings.... an Underlyns wings are more ornamental then practical..

Briar Rose

My Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty) for the IADR's Twisted Fairy Tales Show. 
The base was from an old lamp that I have had for about 8+ years, a bit or a touch-up and it was perfect. The briar is a larger version of the branches that I make for my Troll maidens.

Necklaces, earrings and Hair pins

Some new little mushroom and Hagstone/Troll Stone Pendants and earrings I have been making! So very very cute!

Trying something a bit different with my Fairy wings..!!


Underlyns WIP

 Only her wings left! After almost a month of pondering I finally decided on the look I wanted. My Underlyns will have Silk wings. They will be a bit different in the way I normally do fairy wings …
My silk paper arrived in the mail the other day! so very happy! I can now start work on her ‘wings’

I have been playing with Fabrics and dyes for this Underlyn. I added a red to the bottom of some grey chiffon to tie the skirt in with her stockings.. 


Well now he is finally finished! - Figgs, a Young Troll

This little guy was started back at the beginning of August. I made him while giving a one on one class on making a Pixie Art doll. So ok... he is not a Pixie but a Troll.. you cant really hold that against him!

I am hoping to take him out to Forrest this weekend, that is if it doesn't rain.. and get some really nice photos of him. Once that is all done, this little chap will be going up on Etsy.
