2018 Update: New work is posted below! Don't miss the exquisite African American treasure by Jane just listed. RARE OPPORTUNITY. We have also had multiple special orders created this year which will be posted soon. Be sure to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order your custom pieces similar but not exact to other ooak dolls she has made. We also have some great 2nd market work coming - contact email@example.com.
Jane has been primarily just doing her one of a kind dolls for the Dollery now for about eight years or so. We are honored. She has a constant queue of special orders to be filled with us and is focused mainly on doing orders. If you view below you can view all kinds of beautiful one of a kind dolls she has created for the Dollery through the last twenty plus years. If you fall in love with a face, she can do a custom order similar for you, not exact but similar and you can choose your clothing colors and hair colors etc... She does amazing "Alice in Wonderland" dolls in all different themes and is always interested in hearing your new ideas. She also creates "Likeness dolls" - which are not quite portrait dolls but she will create a child if inspired to do so in their likeness using your pictures. Contact us for details!
No two are ever exact but they are similar and we can go by the sculpt you love. Costuming will vary and each is sculpted in clay so they vary. This is the only way to get her work now. Be sure to get one before she no longer makes them at all!
PREVIOUS INFORMATION THRU THE YEARS - 2013 Update! Although still working, Jane is slowing down. Her Tendonitis really bothers her hands, a result of many years of sculpting with clay. She has begun working with a new clay. Jane has this to say about the new clay: "The old clay was called translucent Fimo...a German polymer clay. Over the years the company has changed the formula often and lately does not seem to make it at all. The old clay also was hard to shape and I have developed tendonitis from working with it. I believe the new dolls will be just as beautiful as the old, and the new clay is much better for smaller dolls since it shows details better. It is also much stronger."
2012 Update! Oh wow ..... just in this beautiful "Red and her Wolf" Jane has just parted with. It is the last of her 24" inch size as she just can not do that size any longer with her hands. We are honored to represent such an exquisite doll. RARE OPPORTUNITY. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org right away. Also recently in from Jane in time her new "Little sweetheart" one of a kind doll! We have just moved more recent work from our last online show to this page! Be sure to check out Jane's adorable "Alice down the rabbit hole" - sold, but we are taking similar orders for her. Also new recently for our last online show were the adorable "Royal" children inspired by Prince William and Princess Kate's wedding last year. The costuming on each is the same design. Each face varies. The latest set is so adorable! The customer that custom ordered them showed us a photo of the expression she was looking for and "wow" Jane did a fabulous job! These are so REASONABLY priced for one of a kind dolls! The costuming on the boy is actually sculpted in parts!
Another thing Jane has a niche for doing is great "Alice in Wonderland" dolls. Just take a peek thru all the many years of dolls she has done for us. She loves doing them and welcomes custom orders for similar themes. Take note though, Jane's hands do bother her so she is no longer really interested in doing anything over the 18" size. She prefers to sculpt smaller now. Jane is always really busy doing a number of custom orders for us. Hurry... Jane's work sells quickly because it is so reasonable and affordable. Many of her dolls are pre-sold so be sure to contact us about doing a custom "Alice" of your own, "Little Red Riding Hood" or any other specific doll of your choice.
Another popular look has been her "Little Bird" dolls. Each are one of a kinds but have a similar flair to them. Jane is now working in a mix of Super Sculpey and other polymer clays. Prior to 2008 she worked in fimo. If you are interested in Jane's work be sure to email us your info for updates. Currently she is so backed up with orders so the best idea is really to get your custom order in the "que". Jane has also expressed a desire to retire soon. She is enjoying just working on the custom orders as they come in but is really semi-retired already so be sure to get her work while you can!
Special orders: In most cases we can request Jane to do a similar piece to one she has done before but rest assured all her fimo or super sculpey dolls are one of a kinds. She prefers working in a smaller scale now as the bigger size is tough on her hands. She also creates the animals which go with her dolls. We've seen rabbits, wolves and cats so far! Jane no longer does sculpting for Blackhall associates which produced her dolls in resin for HSN. We have carried her one of a kinds and resin "Artist Proofs" only which we feature in our Doll Shows every October. A deposit of 25% is required on orders inside the USA and 30% on international orders, the balance is due when the dolls come in. We will give you an estimated delivery date at time of order.
If you are interested in one in particular please email email@example.com as we may be able to special order on similar to it for you. Also - email your address and number to be added to our Jane Bradbury mailing list and receive our free catalogues. Jane is featured here to the left at our doll show October 2002 with girl in peach. Jane has participated in our 2003 thru 2009 shows and she participated in our 2010, 2011 show as well. Jane will participate in all our shows for 2012.
Secondary market- On some rare occasions we have a collector that has a really special Bradbury doll and we may take it in on consignment OR a dealer goes out of business and we acquire work from them. Stay tuned in for these special gems.....
