The Cast of Golden Girls
The cast of Golden Girls in miniature- 4 1/2 inches tall, (11.4 cm)
Created by Debbie Ritter- artist @ uneekdolldesigns.etsy.com
I came up with the idea for creating my miniatures about 10 years ago when my husband put together a dollhouse for my mom and I decided to make some people to put in it. I looked at clothespin dolls online and decided I could come up with my own way of creating them, and that is when it all started.
I enjoy classic literature ,well written history books, and interesting biographies, so I found myself wanting to create those characters and people I read about into my art work. Since I began doing this with very simplistic characters, I started challenging myself more and more and then started branching out to doing just about anyone, since we all know there is never a shortage of interesting people in this world
