Art doll


I really enjoyed making this art doll. She has indicated to me that she is finished and now would like her journey to begin to her new home. I have enjoyed working on her and am excited that she will be my first doll to list on Etsy.


Her shape is organic, I did not use a pattern just followed the detail in the beautiful fabric and she took shape on her own and of course I had to put some element from nature, I love working with things I find that seem to be gifts from mother nature, she can curl vines so nicely. I embellished a silk pod and nestled into the grape vine as if she was caressing it.


I wish you could see the bead colors and how the light hits them it is hard to capture the warmth and depth with a camera. I will list her sometime tomorrow.

WOW!! Great attention to detail, even the silk-pod in her arms has bead-work!! I also love the way you incorporated the beads into the design of the fabric on her bodice!! LUV-LUV-LUV her!

Your doll is beautiful Jill! Your work is so organic and earthy and the shape and fabric you used for this doll are beautiful.

Am sure she will sell on Etsy.
