Meet Etsy Artist: faeryspellcreations

The unique artist and sculptor behind faeryspellcreations is "a native San Franciscan, mom of two amazing little boys, and wife to the most wonderful husband...who makes (her) living sculpting and sewing dolls based on fairy, mythology, history, and folklore." Her favorite mediums are clay, paper, and fabric. She is inspired by the natural beauty in the world. "I also love reading history, fairy tales, and myths," she admits. "And I always create to music." Although she currently focuses on sculpting her magical dolls, her first love was fabric and "for a long time (she) did custom period and fantasy clothing." While she still works on costumes from time to time, most are for her dolls. "You will find handbags, hats, gloves, masks and fairy wings in my store regularly." She describes her Etsy endeavor as "a job, a hobby, and an absolute pleasure," and hopes to transition into selling there solely within the next year. "Keep creating," she recommends. "When you first start here, it takes a while for people to find you--for those first sales to come in. But don't be discouraged! Instead, use your time productively, create a beautiful store, introduce yourself in the forums and have fun! Please check out her shop:
