Please meet, "Gypsy Jewel"
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!
