Amy Jandrisevits, a former social worker, is a skilled crafter, specializes in a unique kind of doll making.
She makes dolls for children with physical differences. The Dolls are looking the same as the customer.
Jandrisevits had the concept for these types of beloved toys after seeing the usual lack of variety and extent of physical appearances on the market.
Her motto is, if you see something that needs to be changed, do something. Sticking on to her motto, she spends the last four years making crafts for her customers.
Jandrisevits crafts are strictly customizing according to the person who they were creating.
After receiving a request from a client, first, she studies the child she creates. She gives careful attention to the details presented in the reference photographs: Ethnicity, Medical issues, Physical features—as well as any other Unique features of her future recipients.
After complete studying, she begins to build her craft on her round table.
It takes up to seven hours to create one figure.
Every single doll tells a story, and some are rough and heartbreaking, and heartfelt. Jandrisevits tells My Modern Met. I am privileged to be a portion of their stories and honored to get a glimpse into their world. I do not take that lightly.
When her construction begins, her actual canvas is a child him/herself. She has made more than 300 distinctive creatures for the past four years.
Typically her Dolls were about $100 including, shipping.
If someone is incapable to, purchase a doll, she manages to get a craft in the hands of the child in any way.
Because she never once thought about this as a business. Only values are the; excited smiles; and tears of joy that come from children; after they receive; one of the handmade dolls.
Jandrisevits tells if we wanted the society to become one that values differences and inclusivity, we should start it from a simple thing.
