I was taking my usual late night walk in the garden, as I suddenly
from the blackberry bushes... what was it?
I knew it surely was something else than the wind moving the leaves, so
I just had to sneak there quietly
and satisfy my curiosity. Excitement tingled on my back when I lifted
branches... and there she stood,
definitely more startled than me, staring at me with her big golden
So we stood there a while staring at each others, she confused for
me enchanted by her glowing eyes.
I have never seen these little green faeries before, they blend in the
green hues of the nature,
hiding from the humans cleverly. This time little Fernie revealed
herself in the lust
of eating juicy delicious blackberries.
blackberry thief Fernie has ash blond Tibetan lambs hair, and she has
tied a few locks with some green glass beads.
She has also
tied a jute and sparkling fiber string around her head to keep her hair
away from her face.
She has big enchanting golden eyes
painted with quality heat-set oil colors, and they
are glazed to get very living

Apoxie sculpt, which makes her extremely strong,
she has wires all the way to her fingers too.
Fernie's base is driftwood with a blackberry branch that I built up.
The leaves have been cut and painted from artificial plant leaves,
and I have also added the hulls and stamens around the berries, and
painted and glossed them to get more realistic look.
They do look delicious, no wonder she couldn't resist them. The berry
branch can be arranged in different positions.
There is a brass tube in her right leg all the way to her back, and the
base has steal rod which fits the tube,
and she can be taken off from her base.
Her every muscle, bone and all the tiniest details are meticulously

She is anatomically correct all over. She is one of a kind (OOAK)
creature, and will never be duplicated.
She would be 17 cm (6 3/4") tall if she was standing straight. The
overall height with the base is 20 cm (7 7/8")
