New jewelry available on my store!

I have been occupied with a lot of projects lately, and they are  taking a good deal of time and energy from me, but that does not mean that I cannot get creative and work on some fun stuff like making jewelry for a bit, you can see the results of my impromptu jewelry making session on my store, under the handmade jewelry section.

So, to get started I chose a simple but challenging project. Using the least amount of materials, I was going to create lovely dolls to play with for a while.   I sewed small fabric bodies, got my hands on some lace that I dyed by hand and some ribbon I had laying around and set to work.   A simple wrap dress in lace and a ribbon on their necks makes their outfits, and the challenge was to use only colored pencils for their faces. After some time...
