I've been extra busy with commissions lately...never a bad thing!! ...so here's a couple of pictures of my favorite. This is Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess that I made for my fabulous web mistress and long time friend, Beth. Her "fire" dress is made from a piece of collage material that I created by layering fibers between a piece of red satin and some iridescent tulle and then going wild with free motion embroidery and metallic threads. It was a lot of fun to make and I love the way it turned out. The under "mountain" dress is black duponi silk and she's wearing a traditional open fern lei and head piece. This doll was so fun to make because she was so different from what I usually do and she was so complicated to make...I do love a challenge!
