6th Photo Game

Naomi's Fertility Doll

Cindy from Artful Living on the Bluff issued an open invitation for other bloggers to join in the "6th Photo Game".
 What you do is upload the 6th photo you loaded onto your blog when it was first started and then comment on how you would change or improve it. I'm not sure whether we are to comment on how to change and improve the photo or the subject in the photo. So I will comment on both.
My friends, Naomi and Joe want a baby. They've been trying without success for a while and needed a little "Good Juju". So I created this fertility doll for them. It is made of seed beads, jade, ruby zoisite, adventurine and a big green belly stone that I have no idea what it is. It's all bead embroidered onto ultra suede and sewn together.
What would I do differantly to improve it? I'd make it more 3 dimensional and doll-like, but I am not too talented in that aspect of sewing. Also, I wanted to get it done quickly so I could get it to her pronto.
As for the photograph, a better background would have been nice and some close-up shots.
I was a little distressed that this was my 6th photo because my 7th photo was much groovier.

This is my Art Deco Beaded Brooch. The 7th Photo.
See! Isn't this way cooler than the fertility doll? (Sorry, Naomi).
Anyway, trot on over to Cindy's site (above) if you haven't already and see what nifty creation SHE came up with. It's awesome.


  1. What amazing work you create. Such patience it must take to produce these artworks. Wonderful and unusual.

  2. I saw your comment on Jackie Morris' blog and came over to say hi. Wow, your bead art is wonderful. My art is with words.

  3. Kim- Patience is something I have plenty of. Time is another thing...
    Terra- Word art is wonderful. Can you imagine how horrible it would be to not be able to read?
    Both of you Darlings - Thanks for dropping by. I'm off to visit YOUR sites now.


Please weave a web of words for all to see.
