Please meet, "Gypsy Jewel"

Hello and Welcome!
I'd like to introduce my newest doll creation, "Gypsy Jewel". She is a one of a kind, 17" all cloth doll over wire armature. Her face is hand sculpted and painted, costume was made using lots of fancy fabrics, Vintage Lace, Vintage Jewelry bits, naturally lots of glitz and sparkle, including, Swarovski crystalsl, assorted beads, gypsy coin chain, charms, sequins, tarot cards and so much more. I tried to make a Tambourine and ended up making a Music maker thingy around her right hand using a piece of suede as the base, Vintage Bells and Swarovski Crystals. The last picture shows it close up. She is loaded with embellishments and has a simple wooden base that I painted black. There is no pattern available.
She is on her way to "The Magical Gypsy Carnival", 2010 Treasure Of The Gypsy Challenge at the Fall International Quilt Market & Festival in Houston, Texas. The Market and Festival dates are October 30 - November 7, 2010. I want to give a big Thank you to Gypsy Pamela for all the work she does to put this event together every year!
Thanks so much for visiting, please come back anytime!
Take care!
Doll Hugss,

My Dolls Published in Doll Collector Mag Nov. 2010

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to tell you that, I just received the new Doll Collector Magazine, November 2010. As I was turning the pages first I saw my Cinderella Doll then a couple of pages later my Coring, Gypsy Of The Enchanted Forest was there. Its just so exciting, that I had to share it with you...LOL!

I am almost finished with my newest doll (no pattern). I created her to send to Texas for the Gypsy Challenge at the Houston Quilt Fair. I will be mailing her in about 2 weeks. Naturally she is a gypsy in lime and aqua colors mostly with long wavy black hair. As soon as I am finished with her I will post some pictures for you and give you some more information about the Gypsy Challenge. I have entered two years in a row with this year being the third. I am still working on that Tambourine for her and as I mentioned earlier, if it comes out nice I will post instructions for you.

Thanks so much for visiting!
Caroline :)
