19 inches (48.2 centimeters)
This delicate Oriental sweetheart was lovingly created from Tasha Edenholm's "Kemeko" sculpt. Her name means "Child of Summer".
Multiple layers of Genesis heat-set paint were hand-applied to give Natsuko her beautiful skin tone. Each layer was then baked to ensure that her sweet complexion will retain its beauty forever.
Subtle veins, shading, blushing and light mottling were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.
Natsuko's Prisma hair was skillfully drawn on in multiple layers using several different colors and shading techniques to create the illusion of movement and dimension. It was then texturized and sealed for permanent beauty.
She was given Oriental Brown eyes, long, black rooted lashes, and Prisma eyebrows drawn on using a light touch to give them a fine, baby-soft appearance.
Natsuko's tiny nails have been given "half-moons" at the nail bed, and realistic nail tips, which have been lightly glossed and sealed. She has been double sealed to ensure that her skin and hair will retain their beauty for years to come.
A magnet has been installed behind her mouth to enable her to take a modified magnetic pacifier.
Natsuko has 3/4 length limbs and a fully jointed soft doe-suede body, that is realistically weighted with tiny glass beads and filled with Cluster Stuff making her incredibly cuddly.
As are all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Natsuko is signed and numbered.

- 2 outfits shown in photos

My name is Bette Lambert. I am an Alabama native and the reborn artist at and owner of Heartstrings Nursery. As far back as I can remember, I have had two great loves — art and baby dolls. Reborning provides me with the opportunity to combine these two loves into a beautiful art form that puts a smile on the faces of those who see and hold the babies.
By trade I am a graphic designer, with a background in mural artistry, portraiture and fine art. For many years, I operated a successful design agency in east Tennessee, with a worldwide client base and the stress that goes with it! A few years ago, I decided to slow down the pace, so I moved home to Alabama, and began teaching children's drawing classes.
At some point along the way, I discovered reborn dolls and fell in love with the art. I bought them in all shapes, sizes and colors and custom ordered them. Then I decided to start making them for myself. Once I started making them and showing them to people I began to get requests for them and the rest is history! My babies can now be found in homes all over the world.
No matter how many babies I reborn, each one is still special, and is created with loving care. I am continuously looking for new techniques to make my babies ultra-realistic, and I have developed a few techniques of my own that I believe set my babies apart.
