The body looks nothing like the real person's body, obviously. It's not needle sculpted or intricate. Just plain fun.
She's also comical and a bit sassy. She has a pretty face, and has a silk heart over her tummy. I can relate to that!!
The doll is wearing a beaded necklace with a Swarovski Strass crystal. Strass is a grade of Swarovsky crystal and is the finest in the world. I got the crystal from a stunning [and expensive] contemporary chandelier by Schonbeck. (I work in a designer gallery lighting showroom so I tend to graze salvageable little treasures when I can!) The part where the hole is got damaged so it cannot be pinned to the chandelier any longer. I found a better use for it anyway...really suits the doll's personality because the "face person" liked to wear glitzy glam jewelry.
I actually like this concept...it's growing on me. I learned something from working with interior designers... in contemporary applications "less is more." The simpler the lines, the less going on- the more impact it has.
I guess that is where my headspace is right now! What do you think?
This doll is available for sale in my Etsy shop.
