GLESNI, Handmade OOAK Fantasy Welsh Fairy Art Doll Collectible Figurines Mythical Creatures
An Ellyllon Fairy is often a WILD CHILD
"Sometimes the best thing to do is just sit down with a nice cuppa tea and pet your cat."
"Here's to the wild, the weird and the wonderful. To the tribe of troublemakers that think so far outside the box, they dream on the edges of the infinite. Here's to the brightly coloured, divine visionaries that won't stand down, play small or sit out.
Here's to the awakened ones whose purpose is to feed their soul and not starve it.
Here's to the wild ones. Here's to you." Ara
Glesni (means "greenery") is never afraid to show her real spirited self. She likes to live LARGE.
She has an elaborately tattooed face made of hand sculpted and painted paper clay. Her hair is made of unspun green silk fibre with recycled sari silk inclusions. Her hat is a handmade felt bowl with a brass FEATHER plume, hand painted paper roses and an abundance of coloured rhinestones.
Glesni wears a handmade felt cloak in many shades of green with a green cotton vine trailing down the lapel. It has an antique brass flower and LEAF detail on the back hem.
Her body is formed with olive chartreuse wool melton, wood and locally sourced sheep's wool filling. Her skirt is green organza, wool melton strips and green cotton vines.
Around her neck, Glesni wears an iridescent green seed bead necklace with and antique brass LEAF pendant. Her antique brass earrings are ACORNS with rhinestone details.
She carries a hand painted and antiqued wooden box containing her important treasures: A large AVENTURINE semi precious stone, her favourite green teapot and her familiar CAT, Gwybodus (means "knowing") sitting on her handmade wool felt nest and silk flower with hand painted paper flower detail.
CATS: are the masters of flexibility, adaptability, magic and psychic power. They illustrate the value of being unique. Cats embody independence and communication, They help you embrace your ability to communicate with those around you or with the spirit and astral realms.
LEAF: symbolize happiness, growth and rebirth.
FEATHER: basically symbolises the divine. Feathers come from winged creatures of the sky, of the heavens, who fly free and unfettered above the rest of the world. When a feather comes free, it often flutters gently down to be found by us. So feathers represent freedom and also truth.
GREEN AVENTURINE: provides strength, confidence, courage, and happiness. It renews one’s optimism for life and pushes us to take action to acquire what we want in this world. This stone urges one to get out of their comfort zone and take on new opportunities.
