The outfit of Glaciele, the ice fairy, is hand crocheted from silver colored copper wire with loads of seed beads worked in.
She is wearing a bodysuit, the upper part is covered with clear AB finish and the lower part with clear silver-lined seed beads.
The string holding the suit contains silver-lined beads. Silver lined and ice blue seed beads have been worked into her wings which are done with a needle lace technique with edges of ice blue wire.
You also find the silver lined and ice blue beads in her headband, the anklet and the drape attached to the bodysuit.
This is a one of a kind doll, it took many hours to complete this outfit.
For Glaciele I used a vintage European Barbie doll in good, but used condition. She was marketed there under the number 8587 in the years 1975/76, not a high quality, but nevertheless a pretty doll with a Steffie head mold.
Not to worry, the background is fake fur. I just liked the contrast between the warm "fur" and the icy fairy.
This is not a toy and therefore not suitable for little children!
