IFONA, Handmade OOAK Welsh Fairy Art Doll
Gwyllion Fairies can help with PROTECTION
"Did you know that you are powerful beyond measure? Perhaps you don't feel it in the moment, but there it is. Your unawareness does not make it less true. I know some things. Your strength, your resilience and your circle of influence are greater than you imagine. All you lack is confidence and I am here to help with that. So let's get started, shall we?"
“The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.” – Tennessee Williams
Ifona looks a bit regal with her tall witch's cap styled in lavender and white handmade felt. It features a hand painted paper rose in opalescent hues of pale blue/pale orange/lavender and white. On the brim you will find a single iridescent rhinestone.
Her plaited locks are made from locally sourced UK ginger dyed sheep's wool top. Her amazing cloak is a nunofelted creation using antique multicoloured sari silk scraps embedded in a rust/purple/white/gold to good effect.
Ifona's necklace is made of lavender seed beads with two silver pendants, a STAR and a SUN. Her body is formed using deep purple wool melton and wood. Her pointed silver earrings and a single rhinestone complete the effect.
Her skirt is natural coloured welsh wool fleece with an overskirt of embroidered white lace. The white lace is echoed on the back of her cloak, with a tea dyed lace floral detail and a rhinestone in the centre.
Ifona carries a handpainted and antiqued wooden box with a sari silk scarf lining it. One Coturnix quail EGG, a hand painted paper rose and a brown organza silk flower with pearls garnish the box.
In her other arm she cradles a hand felted nest containing a MAHOGANY OBSIDIAN semi precious stone, hand painted paper roses and a Fairy Reference book.
