I am still working hard in the studio. Today I spent the day pricing and packing for the show this weekend at the Tides Inn in Irvington, Va. Everyone tells me how gorgeous it is, and I can't wait to get there.

I have a bunch of new hands ready to go, plus my new line of jewelry, which I've been working on for some time.
These are my Relic Babies. They were excavated from the site of an old European doll factory that operated from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. I think they are just hauntingly beautiful. Here's a look at what I did with them:

I'll have them at the Tides Inn this weekend, and after that they're coming soon to a gallery near you. More on that in the next post.

Hope you had good luck with your show this weekend! Incorporating the dolls in your jewelry is beautiful, indeed!

Your table looked beautiful!
I love the collaged hands. The doll necklaces look fun too.

These little necklaces are fabulous and they will be selling very quickly, I am sure!!
Love them!!

Artfully yours, Linda said...

I have one of those hands, I got it from Judy Gula at Artistic Artifacts. I also have a few body parts from the demolished German doll factories that I use in my art. I can really relate to your art.
