Lorelei is home!!!

This is my beaded art mermaid doll who left home six months ago to visit other beading ladies in one of my online groups. Each beader worked an area on the doll in whatever pattern, stitches, and colors they wanted to.
She came home all finished yesterday, and I'm still handling her and finding new patches of beautiful beading! What a fun "round robin" this was!

Here above she's shown from the back, and her pretty long and trailing hair held up so you can see how the back of the head was beaded in a spiral pattern, and then longer dangling strands were done.............
...........and I just love the pearls and swarovski crystals woven into her braids that shine and sparkle! What beautiful beading all over; I'm so happy she's back home, and I thank the ladies who worked on her so very much!
Lorelei has a little clay face; and check out that ruffled bosom! She also traveled with a little paper journal I made to go with her, and each lady wrote about her visit. It's a treasure as well as the doll since they both traveled to Australia and Germany and Washington State and Arizona; then Pennsylvania before coming back to me here in North Carolina!

Now I'm working on two small beaded projects for the coming month of March; both for online challenges. Stay tuned.............
