Fall's Frolic

















This is a doll I made for the Upper Midwest Bead Society challenge a couple of years ago. We each received a packet of beads and had to create something with an autumn theme using each kind of bead. The small doll on the back represents the inner child, hence "Fall's Frolic". I was honored to received an award of merit for the piece and have it on display at the Textile Center in MN. I used ultra suede for the base to do the bead embroidery and polymer clay for the faces....each comes out different depending on my mood at the time. I posted a close up of the face on the BJP blog. Bead Happy!

Hey...we now both blog! Never thought that would happen, but isn't this a nice way to share our work? So much easier than beggin the DH to help with the website!!!! Oh well, luck to both of us. I'm working on some ATCs today & got a picnic to go to with Frodo.

That is one amazing doll! How big is it? It looks quite large but I know pictures can be quite deceptive. Looking forward to seeing your work in the bead project.
