oh how I do love making these! This one is all hand done in black and gold, with glass pearl beads and pretty little beaded tassels that fall at the temples. I put this one up on etsy for sale and am beginning another one for another friend of mine. It measures almost 5 inches at the peak and looks fabulous on, I've been quite sick lately so I am not gonna take a picture of me in it at this time lol
here is the link to my etsy shop too, I put my little dolls up there a bit ago too
Read all the blogs I follow? I can't find a central place to keep up with the posts, blogger has me stumped.
Also I am making, or rather trying to make a Russian headress , I am taking lots of in progress pics including my blunders along the way and will post some later today, but right now I have to figure out how to find the blogs I follow... Dang technology.. Lj had them all in a friend feed, there must be the same thing here too right?
making things.. trying to figure out practical uses for all the animal heads I sculpted last year, and I think I came up with something reasonable. I gave them bodies..albeit somewhat crappy bodies for the moment, but I am still learning, here is the result.
I still have about 5 more heads to work with, that need to be dealt with before my cats chew up any more of them :)
I am really winging it with the jackets though, I truly have no idea how jackets are really supposed to be put together.
Canadian artist illustrator, eccentric and maker of many a useless thing. I paint mainly in watercolours with a folk-ish fairytale victorian-esque style. I sometimes dabble in making puppets, jewelery, kokoshniks and dolls of little woodland creatures wearing their winter jackets ;) I have also been known to write terrible limericks and dreadful prose.
