Madam Butterfly




Here is a piece I beaded to wear as a necklace..Isn't she pretty..
I drew the form out and made the body , stuffing it very firm....
The face I made with clay and then painted.
It took quite awhile to complete but well worth time spent..

I love how the "chain" seem to go round and round. How do you get that effect?

I know I've said this before...but I really am in awe of people who are so crafty and creative. I am NOT one of those types. I scrapbook so my kids have some memories, but it's not fancy or creative....this looks great. :)
