"The soul,

fortunately, has an interpreter - often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter - in the eye.”

                                                                            - Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

Selecting the eye color for the doll is not only a thrilling and exciting moment in the making, but it is also the single defining element that brings forth the soul that will come to life.

As such, our very own eyes will be keen on discriminating, judging and selecting even between colors so minutely different that they are typically indistinguishable to anybody else, except the mama. (This is not so different from all other aspects of motherhood that begin the moment a baby comes into the world, don't you think?)

With this said, let me show you the shades of eye color for the beautiful brunette that is lying on my work table...waiting for her turn to awaken.

Two shades of "teal"

Two shades of "sapphire blue"

The colors are ever so slightly different that they play tricks on the eyes, making the mind believe that there is no difference. But, for those who see extra-finely, the difference is rather noticeable. With that, I leave you to decide which soul will come forth to life next.
