Hello to my English-speaking visitors
Although the majority of the website is offered only in German, below you will find the most important information regarding my dolls, me the doll maker, custom orders, prices and Mariengold patterns and tutorials for doll clothes and doll making.
If you have any further questions, I warmly welcome you to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to read my website in your language, please use an online translator, for example the one from Google.
My name is Maria and I am a doll designer, author and communications graduate from Berlin. After concluding my studies at the Berlin University of the Arts, I started my own business with the label Mariengold in 2007.
I design and fashion professionally hand-made dolls, and publish eBooks with do-it-yourself tutorials for dolls and doll clothes. I teach local doll making classes regularly and write a blog that offers articles relating to dolls and doll making, as well as colorful accounts from my workshop and my life.
You can find my doll portfolio here.
My webshops can be found at Etsy. There I sell dolls, eBooks for the making of dolls and doll clothes, as well as material kits & supply for doll making.

Tutorials for the Making of Dolls and Doll Clothes
In addition to making dolls, I also enjoy designing doll clothes and various doll types. In my Etsy shop I offer eBooks for the making of dolls and doll clothes as well as material kits and supply for doll making.
There are five doll making eBooks available at the moment. They are for the dolls Mitzi, Baby Twink, Pip and Kulla as well as for the felted head doll Charlie Bo plus my latest publication „From Tip To Toe“ about the creation of lovely little details and special features. Your self-made dolls can be dressed up with three eBooks for creating clothes for girls, boys and babys.
Here you will find lots of pictures of Mariengold dolls that might encourage you to make a doll yourself.
Since Mariengold is based in Germany, the business language is German.
I do speak English and interact in this language with my international customers. But I write my bills in German. Also my general terms and conditions are in German. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask – I will gladly inform you about my terms and conditions in English.
