Wings and Ears
I've been doing some fun projects these last couple of days. My friend Jillian sent me some wonderful beads along with a shard of a porcelain doll's head with the ear still on it. I knew she had some quirky finds and had told her to send me something I could bead for her. I got the ear and decided to glam it up a bit. Maybe a porcelain doll that Cleopatra would have played with....
So here is her finished brooch. If she keeps sending me doll shards, we may be able to piece together a little Frankenstein's monster.
I also got some fabulous raku wings and Lentil beads (and an awesome face) from a great shop on Etsy called Wondrous Strange. Here's one of the wings I beaded as a brooch.
Tonight I'm going to the Art for Animals Auction to bid on some wonderful art. All proceeds benefit our local animal shelter.
