Eye Cry Silver Tears


Another sad one - with vintage 1940s 'blinking' dolls eye.

This time I made it darker by antiquing the sterling silver 'tears' with liver of sulphur.

Also with copper, purple merino wool, natural raw diamonds, Faux bone & UV resin with purple glitter.

I have a whole drawerful of different colours of glitter in tiny pots (mica powders mainly) & I refuse to let my little girl use any. Its more expensive than the stuff at kindy! She gets most upset & accuses me of being Mean Mummy.

Well at least thats an idea for Santa? Must write it down before I forget.....

Your lists of ingredients read like recipes for poems:
raw diamonds,
liver of sulfur...

I like this eye.

P.S. Friends were over last weekend and one of them picked up your triffid and started to exclaim, "WHERE did you get this? It's amazing! It's RING!" and showed it to everyone, who all oohed and ahed. So, no fears, he's well loved here.
