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.....
I'm the cephalopod loving redhead behind Ginga Squid studio. In previous lives I've been an engineer, accountant, scuba instructor and most recently - a mum to 2 gorgeous little kiddies (well they are most of the time)!
I love creating things - it keeps me sane. I particularly love sourcing interesting, unusual and rare natural gemstones and fossils (its my equivalent of a shoe addiction).
I also love colour - bring it on!
I like to use beads in my work that I can buy Fair Trade from developing countries, so helping the craftspeople directly.
