Meet Baby #40
born October 6, 2014 at 3:48 pm.
4 lbs., 3 oz.            19 in.

Jewel is a custom ordered baby. She lives in Nevada.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Jewel is a one-of-a-kind creation.

Jewel was lovingly created from Denise Pratt's original,
now discontinued, "Jewel" sculpt.

Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied,
then each layer was baked to ensure that her baby skin
will retain its beautiful detail forever.

Subtle veins, lightly mottled newborn skin, blushing and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.

Her reddish brown hair was painted on in several layers,
texturized and heat set for permanence.

Jewel was given individually mouth-blown blue-gray
German glass eyes, her l
ong light brown lashes were hand-applied
and her 3-dimensional eyebrows were painted on
with a superfine brush
to give them a fine, baby-soft appearance.

Her little limbs, head and jointed doe suede body are weighted
with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester
fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give her the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn.

Moist looking lips, little saliva bubbles, a hint of baby tears and tiny manicured
fingernails and toenails add to the realism of this little girl.

Her nose has been opened, shaded, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". She has a magnet behind
her mouth so she can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Jewel has fully jointed 3/4 length arms and legs.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Jewel went home with
a signed birth certificate, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
a handmade ID bracelet,
and her favorite little stuffed doll.
