I just HAD to share this doll with you that Lezlei created. Her name is Bernice and she is a one-of-a-kind, hand-sculpted doll. Bernice was Lezlei's Great Aunt. Although Lezlei never met Aunt Bernice, she got a photo that was taken of her as a child in 1923 that she used to fashion her doll after. This is "the real" Aunt Bernice . . .
Every time I look at this doll I'm just amazed at all of the detail. No molds were used to create any part of this doll. Here's a back view . . .
Lezlei used paper clay to sculpt Bernice, and all of her accessories with the exception of the lace and flowers. That dress is just fabulous - look at the sculpted pleats! I don't know about YOU, but I just think this doll is one great piece of artwork.
Bernice stands 10 1/2 inches tall, and is 4" at the widest point. You can purchase Bernice from Lezlei's Etsy Shop - Breath of Art for what I think is a STEAL!
