Polymer Clay Face Cousin

Hello again!
Here's a fun thing I just finished...

Cloth Doll Face]

I used to have these white overall shorts on which I would embroider anything. Finally, the only thing holding those overalls together was the embroidery, itself!

Over the years, I have revisited embroidery and thought it about time I do a little more. Love using an old craft and updating it with new ideas and applications. In this case, it's the sculpted cloth faces that is new. Around the face are many sized, colored and shaped beads which I hand embroidered. The bead design is scattered, giving it a really cool texture and it appears as if the bracelet was rolled in and collected beads, randomly.

Took many hours, so I am relieved I like the piece! LOL!

Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.
