The People Who Lift Me Up

Dec 4, 2010

Yes! Yes! An even better special touch!!!

As you saw in one of my previous posts I am all for adding special touches and putting as much thought/work into my COAs etc. as I do my creations. I have been putting a lot of thought into this area once again of late. Being a doll collector, as well as a doll artist, has made me very aware of some of the problem areas in this "sport". One of the biggest "pains in my toosh" for me as a collector was keeping up with all the COAs and nametags. Many times the COAs got misplaced and more then not, the hang/name tags would get bent. So no matter how beautiful and such a treat they were there were still problems.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr right?
Well my dolly friends I do believe I have finally worked out the perfect solution! While this is not a brand new idea to the doll world, as far as logo TAGS go, I would never take credit where credit is not due me, I have never seen COAs done this way in all the years I have been collecting and creating. I have decided to make COAs the same way you would a tag. So now my COA is made out of plastic (which cannot bend) with the dolls name, picture, AND edition number printed and sealed on it. How kick toosh is that? Even better, it is worn as a bracelet for the doll so no worries about it getting misplaced or lost! Along with the COA being on the bracelet there will also be a Tipsy Teacup hang tag. All this is then put together with a nice copper colored ring with a stretchy cord running through it strung with pretty beads.
I am so excited about this and love how the prototype turned out. It of course is a much more expensive way to do things BUT I feel collectors will appreciate having such a nice COA/hang tag/bracelet/treat more then they will be bothered with the added costs.

What do you think?

  6. Ree I love the babies you create and I think this is another wonderful idea. Hon I wish everyone took the care and pride that you do in your creations. I have a question though... are you coating the copper in anything? Not sure if it would work on the cloth like it does on skin and disscolor?

  7. Thank you so very much my dear hearts! It looks like the Tipsy dangle tags are a go whoot whoot!

    Ahhh yanno what Mairia I didn't think of that? Grant it, it's copper colored aluminum but not sure if it would have the same effect? Think I will be changing what jump rings I use. Thank you hunni bunni!
