This is a little art doll I made for my friend Gloria (one of my Art Girls) ... named "Gloria", of course! She stands about 12" tall, and is firmly stuffed so that she will stand upright on the dowel. Machine satin-stitched around the edges and hand beaded.

Time and Tide

Time and tide wait for no man ... and this pendant couldn't wait any longer to be made. Incorporating the inner works of a vintage watch, a polymer clay moon face given to me by Judith Skinner, and various beads, stitched onto a leather backing, the pendant is 2-1/4" wide at the widest point, by 2-3/4" tall, including the beaded bale. I haven't had time to make a proper necklace for it yet, but it still looks great on the antiqued ball-and-chain one where it temporarily resides.
