|Lady in Pink|
I recently came across the Legend of the Christmas Spider. What a wonderful story! I looked up the story on the internet and found a myriad of spiders. So many that, I, too found a bit of inspiration and decided to try my hand at making a few.
The one at the top of the page is my Lady in Pink. She is so delicate and feminine. I could see her gracing a Steampunk wedding reception table. Could you just not see her sitting atop a delicate lace tablecloth? Or maybe next to the guest book as she greets the friends of the happy couple? Or perhaps this little lady will gently stand in a bouquet of feathers and flowers?
|Ming Dynasty Lady|
My next creation is Ming Dynasty Lady. When I was going through my stash of beads I found this beautiful large blue and white bead. It's not really from the Ming Dynasty, by the way! But, I also found the blue fabric "bead"...could I mix the two, I wondered? Won't know until you try it. So, I used a head pin that I thought would suit it as well some Lapis Lazuli. She looks so elegant, doesn't she? I see her on a mantle sitting besides an Alabaster vase, perhaps?
These little ladies were so much fun to make, I think I will make more and maybe some spider earrings. After all, Halloween is coming up very soon.
