Since joining the Etsy community, I have come to know some wonderful and inspiring artists who have encouraged me to explore and celebrate the side of myself that I had formerly concealed as 'juvenile'. Part of this exploration involved admitting that I do love dolls, and has evolved into a desire to own as many as possible! The revellation that I am not alone in this pursuit has also been enlightening: I have met some wonderful, artistic doll collectors through the Den of Angels forum!
In this and following posts, I would like to introduce you to the wonderful world of Ball-jointed-dolls, and to share some of the beautiful dolls and doll-related items that have been created by Etsy sellers.
The following doll has been made by Uniquely Yours By Bdent. Brenda Dent is a full-time doll artist been who has been sculpting OOAK (One Of A Kind) dolls in polymer clay since the early 90's. I think her work is just stunning!
