This was a very special fairy for a truly special and amazing young woman. Cassie's mum, Cindy, wanted to commission a fairy for her daughter's 18th birthday. Se told me lots about Cassie and her interests and sent me pics of Cassie to create her as a fairy.
So, this is Cassie, with her love of music (she plays the ukulele and the guitar) and her love of writing and literature. Her faith is also important to her, so she has a little cross around her neck. And the most important thing - the love and support of her mum, represented by the little love bird sitting on her knee.
My other half, Will, carved the books to finish off the piece.
This fairy would have been about 420mm standing
