She's Done


Another one done
although I'm getting slower and slower, I notice. Well, the carpal tunnel surgery is for the 29th and then the other hand about a month later...

What is your inspiration for these faces?? They are quite nice.

I really like this series you are doing! I have always loved the material you choose too. What is the destination of these little beauties?

I'm not sure, diana...I think I like to take one element (like the faces) that is the same and then see how many variations I can do before I run out of ideas or interest. On my web site I have a few photos of two series I've done in the past few years....one is a series of hand portraits of friends of mine who are also beaders....in that series the similar element was the concept of the hand itself being used to portray the whole person. I made about 2 dozen of them all together, so far. Then I did a couple of small figures based on the hamsa hand that I called guardian spirits after I was diagnosed with breast cancer....the similar element there was the hamsa hand and the inspiration was to make a protective amulet for anyone who wore them...starting with my self, of course. I've probably done about 3 dozen of them...in various sizes. Now it seems to be faces that interest me...starting with the very expressive man in the moon (from a push mold by Maureen Carlson) and now a face from her victorian series. I've tried in the past to sculpt my own faces, but have never done anything I care for yet. Maybe someday...

hi, suzyq...thank you....they're all going to a local gallery that carries my work...Oceanic Arts...for their holiday sales.

Wow BB. These are truly little gems! All of them! I'm thinking they'll sell like crazy.
