Amathyst, a new doll in a box

A new dreamy textile doll arrived in my shop! She comes in a beautiful vintage presentation box, of which I found a few in a local shop here. They look so old and from another time and place, they inspired me to make this new textile creature. The doll is called Amathyst. For her I used a lot of lovely vintage and antique lace, dusty pink Teeswater fleece and beads. I painted ivy branches over her neck and face with water colors. On her chest she wears a little amethyst, and flowers made of vintage lace and gold thread.
