Greetings to our ever expanding list of readers!

Before discussing the details of the June release we’d like to explain a little bit about our necklace sizing for those who are new to orangebabydolly’s work. In our eBay listing titles we note the general size category into which each piece falls. These categories are as follows:

S ~ Necklaces measuring 9cm – 10cm
M ~ Necklaces measuring 10.5cm – 11cm
L ~ Necklaces measuring 11.5cm – 12.5cm
XL ~ Necklaces measuring 13cm -15cm

We also note more details about the fit of each necklace in its detailed description. Necklaces with lariat style clasps are listed with the maximum neck circumference the necklace can accomodate rather than the actual length of the chain. Necklaces that have a recommended “best fit” were designed with a particular size of doll in mind and will only look the way orangebabydolly intended them to appear when worn by that size of doll. Most necklaces consisting of a pendant on a single strand of chain with a back clasp do not have such notations and can be worn by any type of doll that measures smaller than the given length of chain. Mature mini girls, for example, can happily wear our 9cm pieces even though we do not own one to serve as a jewelry model.

We do have a new mini joining our model lineup this month: Balthazar is a Volks MSD Schulze. He and our other new arrival Bainbridge, a Kanon Yui on a Volks SD13 boy body, belong to idrisfynn.

The June release features a celestial motif again, this time in the form of stars. There is an impressive amount of detail in some pieces this month, so be sure to look closely at the clasps! All of our semiprecious gemstones are natural unless otherwise noted. For the first time we will be offering rune rings in smaller sizes, and the spiral ring not seen since our very early days has been brought back for this release in a much more polished form.

Please note: This month only our listings will be for three days rather than seven and immediate payment is required. St. James and idrisfynn will be vacationing in Paris as of the 5th of June, so all purchases must be shipped out before that date. orangebabydolly will be busy preparing jewelry for the July ABJD convention Dollectable during that time and will not be accepting any orders. There will not be a July eBay release for this reason. Our shop will be completely closed from June 4th to June 19th, but we can accept orders for simple sterling and gemstone rings after we reopen.
