    Guys, thank you so very much. I am so happy that you like the dolls and the photos!

    Thanks, Monika, for feeling in the gaps- the eyes are indeed made by me. They are glass-like eyes which are interchangeable and which insert into the doll's eye sockets. I personally prefer glass/resin eyes to painted ones, although I do think that they can look equally beautiful of course!

    Thank you again, everyone, for the lovely, heart-warming comments!

    Wow! Are they interchangeable? I can't believe such a small scaled eye inserted into tiny heads! Blows my mind.

    They are so beautiful and you did it seemingly soooo fast! I guess Lidia is a great teacher. Do they have leather in the joints? I was wondering because they are so small and I know how difficult it is to work with small dolls.

    Never stop dreaming, if you have a dream you have reason to live for. Don't let them die pursue them achieve them and find another to pursue.

    Oh guys, you are too nice! No wonder Monika spends so much time here (kidding!)- I need to be back properly too!!!

    I nearly cried reading all these wonderful comments- some completely unexpected, for instance I didn't even realise that someone could appreciate the size of my dolls in relation to their eyes (thank you!) but every time I change the eyes, I suddenly remember! It is a little of a challenge to start with but it is definitely worth it!

    Sculpting it or carving in leatherhard porcelain is a completely different matter though... :eek:

    Lidia is indeed an incredible teacher but she praised me loads as well- we did work almost around the clock and I still do, especially now. This is the best thing I could be doing, though. Doll making, my goodness! My own porcelain BJD's!!!! I'm still shocked myself, lol!


    I am very proud, as I just found out that my dolls have been featured on Art Dolls Only Blog! So happy!!!

    Big hugs,

    Ilona

    Ilona, I think you may have misunderstood what Lilithskyblue was asking.

    I believe she wanted to know (Now that she's asked it, I want to know also) are the joints of the doll lined with something such as leather to prevent the porcelain on porcelain rub. (I've seen recently where another artist uses another material to line the joints.)
