I made another one :)

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

finished! My interpretation of a Kokoshnik

well here it is all done :) I made it for a dear friend and cant wait to see what it looks like on her!! It took me 30 some hours of work, but I think it was well worth it.

How do I ...

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?

So I've been busy..

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.
