"The human spirit is like the wings of a fairy; as fragile as paper. Time brings tears and tatters to our spirit and wings. This calls for wisdom and grace to recognize the fragility in ourselves and others." That's the special message that accompanies this very special series of dolls. They remind us that we are ALL fragile sometime, and so be kind to those around you because you never know what someone else is going through.
Fragility is an original doll envisioned, designed, stitched, stuffed and embellished by Charlie Patricolo. Charlie lives and works in beautiful Murphy, NC, near the John C. Campbell Folk School. She also teaches and demonstrates her craft at various venues--from Florida to Michigan! Charlie is overflowing with ideas (and colorful fabric), and it's hard to look at her dolls and not feel her effervescence coming through.
This sweet fairy, with her fluffy head of turquoise hair and tattered wings of paper and organza, sits (permanently) on a clear acrylic cube.
This doll sits approximately 10½ in. (with hair).
