New Face Pendant - done!

I finished my latest face pendant today.  Yay!  I had almost enough beads to complete the fringe without breaking into the new container I found - yes - found. I really do have a lot of beads.  LOL.

She reminds me of a Valentine so that is what I've decided to call her.  (Even the beads around the face seem to form a heart.)  The only thing I need to decide now is how to hang her.  Do I do Viking Knit, use a cord or a ribbon?  I like Viking Knit but that means weaving the wire and beading the ends and creating the connections.  I enjoy it but it takes time - as does any good thing.  Oh well, we'll see.

This is a photo I just took before writing this post:

I used small teal blue seed beads in the fringe to compliment her eyes.  The face is made by sculpting polymer clay.  This one is hand painted and sealed and then attached to felt with E6000 in order to securely add the hand bead work. I hope that you like her.

Until next posting, take care - K

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with one heman type cat, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over ten years.  There is also a two year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
