These Icicle Dolls are made according to the fairy-tales of Hans Christian Andersen : "The Snow Queen" and "The Little Mermaid". I love his fairy-tales. The dolls are for the swap of Belinda. The silk for the mermaid is self-dyed. The snow queen is sewn with organza with iriscedent white and silver, I couldn't catch the shimmering on the photo. I have made three Renaissance Icicle Dolls for her swap, too.
