Cinderella Earings How-to!

Cinderella Earings how-to!
The supplies are listed with a picture of the item.
Also, it is helpful to have a couple of jewelry tools, as shown.
Simply line up the supplies as I did and attach from the bottom up.
By making your own doll jewelry, you can save a bunch, not to mention you will have one-of-a-kind items.
As you can see its easy! Enjoy!

Cinderella Necklace How-to

This is the Necklace on Cinderella.
Its is sooo easy!
I have added the supplies and amounts directly in the pictures so you can see what the item is. I hope this helps.
Start with the Crystal heart... add a bail. Slide it over the Crystal chain.
Next add knot covers to each end of crystal chain, adding a small dot of E-6000 glue, then press closed. Add twist closure. You may need jewelry pliers, but it can be done by hand.
Thats it!

Update on Cinderella Doll Pattern

Its freezing here in Florida... burrr! I'm just happy its not snowing.
So sorry for the delay in posting. I have been playing catch up with a pile of work.
Well Cinderella now has a head piece with faux pearls, silk ribbon flowers, tiny Vintage flowers, boa, lace and fluffy feathers. She has Swarovski Crystal earings, rhinestone necklace with Swarovski Crystal heart pendant. I will post the how-to on her jewelry for you.
Oh, I almost forgot her fake eyelashes and crystal eyeliner... she is very happy with them!
I'm adding the embellishments to her dress. This is my favorite part! I will be saving the shoes for last. Unfortunately, the "glass looking" shoes that gave me the inspiration to make Cinderella just aren't working, so I will have to make my own... that should be interesting LOL...
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Update on Cinderella Doll Pattern

This is just a sneak peek at Cinderella with hair. The first photo is a picture of the colored mohair I used to make her hair, it is in soft colors and I wanted her hair full, soft, wild yet under control. I added it by felting it from the back of her neck forward. I don't want to show you the full front facial view until it is finised to my liking...

As you can see, I started her head piece using gorgeous Bridal lace with pearls. I hand sewed it onto a wire for stability... Still not completely sure how I am going to embellish it, your going to have to wait and see, like me... LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by.... Take care!!!

Update on Cinderella Doll Pattern

Sorry I haven't been able to post any new updates for a while. Family emergency...
Anyway, as you can see I am working on the bodice. Once I am finished hand sewing the bodice to the doll, I will attach her head, then her hair... CAN'T WAIT! It might be a few days due to unforseen family matters.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a lovely weekend!
