Irish folklore explains that fairies are the fallen angels who were cast down by the Lord God out of Heaven for their sinful pride. Some fell into the sea, and some on the dry land, and some fell deep down into Hell. But the fairies of the earth and the sea are mostly gentle and beautiful creatures, who will do no harm if they are let alone, and allowed to dance on the fairy raths in the moonlight to their own sweet music, undisturbed by the presence of mortals. (Story origin)
 
I make these “Wee Folk” miniature dresses from forest materials: from dried grasses, dried hydrangea and adorned with tufts of field flowers or birch.
They are all one-of-a-kind and come with their own custom miniature hanger.
