Marina Bychkova ~ Enchanted Doll

Marina Bychkova, an enormously talented doll maker, presents Echo No5 "Saffron." $18, 900 CAD


Saffron’s exquisite crown was inspired by and constructed from components of traditional Norwegian jewelry, which I acquired during my travels in Scandinavia.
Light and delicate, it’s made from silver filigree wire, 24k gold-plated pendants and disks, that shimmer and sparkle as they move. Other features include two silver Buyao hairpins; a pair of silver earrings; 14k gold-plated bracelets; bead embroidery and Swarovski crystal accents on the printed costume; two pairs of silver shoes; two pairs of interchangeable feet; magnetic mohair wig; custom stand and a specially upholstered tin box.
The doll is porcelain, ball-jointed, china painted and articulated with industrial springs. 13.5” (34.5cm) tall. 2012

  2. Something about they way Marina does the facial expression and the liquid shine of the eyes often makes her dolls look very melancholy to me.

  3. Her dolls are very pretty and well made but fro me the doll is 50% of the experience adn the designer is the other 50% having met Marina in person once, I can say that evne if money wasn't an issueI'd preffer not to spend it on her.... There is somethign to be said for being trully and honestly nice to people...and she isn't.

    1. You'll have to tell me the rest of the story privately. That's sad to hear.

    2. I can't say that I'm surprised to hear that. I've heard stories from others that Marina isn't easy to deal with when you order from her e.g. lack of communication, unable to keep deadlines and so on.

  4. Well, I don't understand it--- she's got such a huge following of sheeple ready to wait years and years for dolls that will never come and that don't mind the psychological torture...
