I was a member of Beaded Art Dolls when I started this doll. It was a challenge and buttons were to be used along with beads. I chose this Bendy doll form which is around 14 inches tall........bad choice as I never did get it finished in time for the competition. Anyway about 3 years later she is finished . I have spent hours here and there beading on her . I made her face from sculpy, painted it and then put a crackle finish on it. I think it gives it an aged look. Now that she is finished I think her weight went from a few ounces to 5 pounds with so many beads. I named her "Venus"....Godess of Beauty
