"THE MATRIARCH"
This piece was done for a challenge. The subject was a "tree", so I decided to do a Family Tree. It took quite awhile to finish,as it stands 7" tall and is 100% beaded. The faces I did using clay and a commercial mold, and then they were painted and sealed.
I was just thinking I should have used picture faces of the family... oh well....too late....sigh!
I sell a lot of my pieces but this one I shall keep...
I thought I would show you something other than Postcards for a change!

Wow I love tree art, this one is beautiful!

In response to your comment about my doll eyes, I make my own, and I did a tutorial on how to make them yourself (easy) on my blog recently:

FANTASTIC, Maggie --- love it ---- you did such a super job on this. I love seeing your beaded pieces -- your work is impeccable == I know -- your "blue doll" lives with me and I see her every day and just love her and the wonderful lady (you) who made her and sent her to me. I will always cherish her.

How clever! Your beadwork is so beautiful, I can see why it took long to make, the work that went into it was worth it!
