About me

A dolls sequined body

Hi, I'm Clare Coyne designer and maker of Diamond Hill Dolls. For most of my life I have been a multi-media crafts person working as a jeweller and costume designer. I have been a doll maker since 2007 specializing in one-of-a-kind handmade cloth dolls.

I design and make these dolls in my studio at Waterloo London. When I'm not making dolls I'm on the hunt for fabrics and haberdashery and I like to relax by kayaking on the Thames - if you see me give me a wave.

Inspired by the uniqueness of every face and character I come across, the need to create something beautiful to be treasured and passed on and a passionate love of textiles have all brought me to the path of doll making. My website is named after my favourite inspirational walk - up Diamond Hill Mountain in Connemara National Park, Letterfrack, Ireland and home to my Mother.
