The true harvest of life is intangible...it is in the tints of the morning and evening...it is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

ARTISTIC JOURNEY DOLL SWAP


Introducing LLADORA
"With nimble fingers, she twists silver threads, beads and gemstones into beautiful jewellery . She dreams of the “yet to be” with a deep contentment that all will be well. She is a collector of dreams, she weaves them on to a silver thread and wears them close to her heart"


I am taking part in the "Artistic Journey" doll swap which is being run by Linda Baldock with 80 participants from around the world. Lladora is the doll that I have made for the swap. Her head hands and feet are hand made in Polymer clay, her body is a poseable wrapped wire armature. She is looking forward to leaving on her long journey from the valley of dreams to her new home in the United States, where I hope that she will be as much loved as she is here.

Would you believe I used to be hugely into dollmaking? Sewing was my thing, but very detailed. I collected antique dolls, too. It all took up too much space so I gave up the collecting. Just had to take a moment to say how I admire your work. The details are lovingly crafted and so beautiful. Wonderful fun!
