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 e-books with do-it-yourself tutorials for dolls and doll clothes. I teach local doll making classes regularly and write a blog that offers journalistic 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.

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 and DaWanda webshops I offer e-books for the making of dolls and doll clothes as well as material kits and supply for doll making.
There are five doll making e-books 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 by Mariengold and 1000 Rehe. Your self-made dolls can be dressed up with three e-books for creating clothes for girl dolls, boy doll and baby dolls.
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.
